Talk by Eamon Phoenix and Philip Orr on Ethical Remembering

Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council’s Good Relations Programme cordially invites you along to a Talk by Eamon Phoenix and Philip Orr on Ethical Remembrance in light of the Decade of Centenaries.  Eamon and Philip will be  examining two of major events which took place between April and July 1916. The Easter Rising in Dublin and the Battle of the Somme. The event aims to look at how communities remember events and what influence diverse ideas on remembrance have on modern views of historical events.
