Mobilise the poets: art and culture in the Irish Revolution

History Ireland Hedge School podcast recorded at the Allingham Literary Festival, Abbey Centre, Ballyshannon, Nov 9th 2019.

Arthur Griffith made this exhortation from his Gloucester Prison cell in January 1919. But how did the arts (literature, film, the visual arts, music and song) affect the Irish Revolution? How in turn did the Revolution affect the arts? History Ireland editor Tommy Graham was joined for a wide-ranging discussion by Paul Delaney (literature), Ciara Chambers (film), Roisín Kennedy (visual arts) and Fintan Vallely (music & song).
