12th Century Writers and 20th Century Newspapers: Ireland through the Eyes of the British
Wednesday, 2 October 2019, 6 – 7pm
A talk by Daryl Hendley Rooney (TCD) and Dr Elspeth Payne (TCD) as part of the Dublin Festival of History.
This event discusses British attitudes towards Ireland and the Irish at two key moments in Ireland’s history: the Anglo-Norman Invasion of 1169 and the establishment of the Irish Free State in 1922.
In the first talk, Daryl Hendley Rooney examines the writings of twelfth-century English commentators before and after the invasion. Moving into the twentieth century, Elspeth Payne then considers changing ideas about Anglo-Irish connections in the British popular press across the first decade of Irish independence.
Daryl Hendley Rooney is a PhD candidate in the School of Histories and Humanities, Trinity College Dublin.
