Senior Students Attend Abbey Theatre Talk

On Tuesday the 6th of October both Leaving Cert and 5th year students attended the Abbey Theatre for a talk on the 1916 rising to coincide with the students starting Sean O'Casey's magnificent play The Plough and The Stars.  Students had the privilege and pleasure of taking part in a talk by historian Fearghal McGarry for the launch of his essay The Abbey Theatre and Easter 1916 and for a discussion of the Abbey Theatre’s involvement in the events of Easter 1916.
