The Lily and the Poppy: Reconciliation and the Centenary Commemorations

A lecture by historian Philip Orr and former Lord Mayor of Belfast, Tom Hartley on the nature of reconciliation and the work being done to unify the two communities in Northern Ireland.

The speakers will discuss the importance of the 1916 Easter Rising to Nationalist and Republican traditions and of the Battle of the Somme to Unionist communities.

The talks will be followed by a question and answer session and a tour of the Museum’s poppy gallery and Liverpool 1916 display.
