Listen to Festival contributor Professor Eunan O’Halpin on Newstalk discussing the recent controversy over plans to commemorate the RIC and DMP. Professor O’Halpin is a member of the Expert Advisory Group on Commemorations.
And here is another Festival contributor, retired Garda Jim Herlihy, interviewed in the Irish Times about his recent experiences in relation to this controversy. Jim is a member of the Harp Society which campaigns for a memorial for the RIC and the DMP.
Both their contributions to our 2019 Festival – Jim Herlihy’s specifically about the RIC – can be heard on our 2019 Podcasts and Playback page.
