June 2019 Sunday Meeting

St Stephen’s Green is one of the country’s best known and best loved public parks. It also has a full and fascinating history that incorporates everything quintessentially Irish from the Guinness family to U2. It saw significant activity during the 1916 Rising, and is home to many of Dublin’s most interesting statues and monuments.

We know that you want to get out in the sun on sunny Summer Sundays for some interaction with your fellow humanists, and at our next Sunday gathering that’s exactly what we’re going to do!

Donal Fallon is a historian, writer and broadcaster based in Dublin. He has worked with RTÉ on the ‘National Treasures’ series and with Newstalk’s ‘Hidden Histories’, and lectures on the Irish revolutionary period with University College Dublin. His tours of Dublin focus on the social, political and cultural history of the Irish capital, and he gives regular tours of St Stephen’s Green.

He will take us on a free tour of the Green on Sunday June 23rd at 3pm.

We will meet at the Fusilier’s Arch (close to the Stephen’s Green Luas Stop) at 2.50pm. Prior to that, a group of us will meet for coffee at Starbucks on St Stephen’s Green (north side of the Green, near the top of Kildare Street) at 2 o’clock.
