Next (Virtual) Meeting:

Friday, April 9

7:00 PM (Mountain Time)

A Lecture by Larry Kirwan on

One Hundred Years of Irish Independence, 1921-2021

Larry Kirwan, our speaker for our Zoom meeting in April, is a Wexford, Ireland-born New York City-based playwright, novelist (Rockaway Blue is his latest), songwriter, and Irish history expert, most famous as lead singer of the long-running Black 47 rock band. His talk, with a Q&A, will focus on the turbulent times of the Irish War of Independence from Great Britain ("The Tan War"), the Treaty which ended that war and established the Irish Free State, and the short, bitter Irish Civil War that immediately followed the signing of the Treaty.  (The IAS thanks the New Mexico State Poetry Society for helping to support this event.)

This event is free and open to the public, but we will gladly accept donations to help fund future programs!
