Press coverage of our 2021 Festival

Great to see coverage of our 2021 Festival in the Irish Times and Southern Star the last few days

On Saturday the Irish Times covered Flor MacCarthy's talk about her family on two sides of the IRA's attack on the RIC barracks in Rosscarbery in 1921: Broadcaster’s look to the past uncovers unlikely family war story (irishtimes.com)

Also in the Irish Times a report on our 'Let's Talk about the Black & Tans' Panel Discussion on how we commemorate crown forces., featuring Professor Marie Coleman, Dr David Leeson, Dr Edward Madigan and Professor John Horne (Chair): Commemorating RIC next year might be less contentious - historian (irishtimes.com)

And in the Irish Times yesterday, coverage of Dr Edward Madigan's contribution to the same panel discussion.

A short film featuring Festival founders Victoria & Simon Kingston was also on the Southern Star's Facebook page last week: https://fb.watch/7ftaUNBIUW/ And we previously featured in the Southern Star in July in relation to funding we were awarded by Cork County Council from their Cork County Commemoration Fund: Projects to benefit from Council funds | Southern Star
