Course Description

Instructor: Henry McNally, MA, Fordham, Irish historian, recipient of the 2019 Eoin McKiernan Award

Forty years ago, the Hunger Strike, long a part of the Celtic tradition, reemerged in Ireland, changing the dynamics of Northern Ireland Politics and setting the stage for an eventual peaceful end to “The Troubles.” Those who died gave their lives freely and willingly for a cause in which they believed, enduring literally months of agony; they died as patriots and as heroes. Examine the events leading to the adoption by political prisoners of this extraordinary measure. Learning experience will be enhanced by viewings of relevant film clips and YouTube videos.
