The Republic in the City - The United Irishmen and the 1798 Rebellion.
In November 1791 a Dublin Society of United Irishmen was founded with the twin aims of the abolition of religious discrimination and the parliamentary reform. Opposed by the governingProtestant Ascendancy elite, anxious to maintain its privilege and power, the United Irishmen soon embraced a revolutionary and republican programme 'to break the connection with England' and to unite 'Protestant, Catholic and Dissenter' - Theobald Wolfe Tone.
This tour will also examine the rank and file United Irish organisation in the city. Certain hotbeds will be highlighted such as Trinity College and the Liberties, as well as the centres of government power such as Dublin Castle.
