Merriman Summer School in Ennis

The 41st Cumann Merriman Summer School will to be held in Ennis between Sunday 17th and Saturday 23rd of August 2008, with the theme “From Brian Ború to Patrick Hillery: Continuity and change in Irish history and society”. Supported by Clare Council, and featuring an exhibition in the Clare Museum of Merriman photographs from Clare County Library’s archive, the school “promises an exciting six days of stimulating discussions and conviviality. In returning to Ennis, where the first Summer School took place, this year’s gathering takes the opportunity to reassess our cultural heritage and societal mores at a time of rapid change in Ireland. There will also be a special focus on history and society in County Clare and Thomond. The Summer School is bilingual: most of the lectures are in English.”
