The Alpha Male in Irish History
The Daniel Cassidy Memorial Lecture

Saturday, November 9, 2019 - 10:00am to 11:30am

In partnership with Hinterland.

Irish historian and broadcaster Myles Dungan on 'How to Keep Great Irish Women Down (temporarily)' -- a tongue-in-cheek survey of Irish 'alpha' males from Charles Stewart Parnell to the prurient and relentless Roman Catholic Archbishop John Charles McQuaid.

Daniel Cassidy was a much-loved musician, and academic who ran the Irish Studies programme at New College, San Francisco up to the time of his death in 2008.
