Irish Ambassador Dan Mulhall visit to Galleries of Justice

We are honoured to be have taken part in an event at Nottingham Galleries of Justice to celebrate the visit of Irish Ambassador Dan Mulhall, on Friday 11 November. The Ambassador gave a talk on Roger Casement and 1916.
Nottingham Irish Studies Group’s contribution was a brief talk on the role of Nottinghamshire’s Sherwood Foresters, who were sent over to quell the Easter Rising. In these days of political turmoil, it’s good to rethink our shared history, and consider what unites rather than divides us. Let us build bridges, not walls.
Ar scáth a chéile a mhaireann na daoine: we live in each other’s shadows, as the old Irish saying goes. Let those shadows be protective ones.
