Re-live the Second World War at Hedge School event

08 May 2015

Would you like to journey back in time and see what it would have been like to live in the North-West during the Second World War?

The History Ireland Hedge School is providing you with an opportunity to do just that by hosting an event at the Whittaker Suite, Guildhall on Saturday, 16 May at 3.00pm. The event is aimed at stimulating debate on what it must have been like to live in the North-West during the Second World War.

A panel of guests will lead the discussions. They include Michael Kennedy (Royal Irish Academy), Pauline Mitchell (Ulster University), local historian and author Joe O’Loughlin, Emmet O’Connor (Ulster University). Tommy Graham, Editor of History Ireland, will be the master of ceremonies.

The event is free of charge. For those who cannot attend, a recording will be available on the History Ireland website shortly afterwards at www.historyireland.com

This event is part of a day to remember celebration organized by Derry City and Strabane District Council to mark the 70th anniversary of the surrender of the German U-boats in Lough Foyle. The debate is one of a number of events included in the celebrations taking place across the city and district.
