1916 : Oxford Historian discusses an Irish rising that brought independence from Britain

Professor Roy Foster from Oxford is speaking on the Irish Exit from the British Empire, in particular the event of the Easter rising 1916. This is where the proclamation of independence declaring Ireland a republic was first read, significantly in the central post office in Dublin. It is told that Gandhi carried the Irish principles of independence around with him until his death which inspired him in fulfilling his mission in India.


The significance of this event is very relevant to our lives today.


Those interested in history, politics, humanitarian issues are welcome to take the chance to ask questions and get responses from Professor Roy Foster on how history is written and remembered.

Riverdance Members Seek Your Support in Kickstarter Campaign

0e7240ad94e771e966749643d2a1c881_originalAfter several very successful appearances at the St. Patrick’s Day Festival in Munich and events around Germany, former Riverdance stars Paula Goulding and Shane McAvinchey are seeking support to bring their show ‘Journey To Ireland’ to Internationale Kulturboerse, the international culture trade show taking place in Freiburg this January.

‘Journey to Ireland’ is an atmospheric and intimate show which takes visitors on an exciting journey through the Irish dance and music culture of the last centuries. The audience is transported to a 19th-century Irish home where a session is taking place, then carried through time to a modern sophisticated Ireland. Full of soulful ballads, slow melodies, cheerful songs and dance tunes that will captivate audiences.

Support Irish Culture on an International Stage

The producers are aiming to raise €4,765 by January 7th 2016 via their Kickstarter campaign. We’re sure all support is greatly appreciated, large or small.
