The Community Outreach Group begins its 2015/16 season on Wednesday 16 September in the Jethro Centre.
Opening the programme will be Dr Cathal McManus (Assistant Director of the School of Education at Queen’s University, Belfast), who will give a presentation entitled ‘Irish Labour in the Time of Connolly and Larkin’. He will outline the efforts of these two men, who took up the cause of the working classes in Belfast and Dublin by seeking to improve the often appalling conditions under which they were forced to labour.
Everyone is warmly invited to attend the event, which begins at 7pm. Light refreshments will be served.
