On the anniversary of the passing of Dublin historian Shane MacThomáis (the unintended star of One Million Dubliners), some of his friends and fellow historians are hosting a screening in his honour.
The documentary The Greatest of the Fenians directed by Donal Higgins, and about John Devoy, will be shown, with donations collected on the day going to Aware, a charity that support people through depression.
John Devoy was a Kildare man and rebel leader, who devoted most of his life to the cause of Irish freedom. He was exiled and died in America, but his remains were brought back to Ireland and he is now buried in Glasnevin Cemetery.
It’s on this Saturday, 23rd April in The Elbowroom in Stoneybatter. All the details are on Facebook.
