Remembering John Redmond

Fri, Jul 25, 2014, 01:15

Sir, – Ronan O’Brien’s article on John Redmond was timely. Redmond’s work on the Third Home Rule Bill will be remembered in Wexford on September 18th on the 100th anniversary of the Bill’s passage into law. John Redmond achieved what Daniel O’Connell, Isaac Butt and CS Parnell could not — the passage of this legislation – a testament to his lifelong political career.

A lecture will be offered by Dr Pauric Travers, which will be hosted by Co Wexford Library Service at 7.30pm in the library at Mallin Street, Wexford.

Incidentally John Bruton will also offer a lecture on John Redmond towards the end of October, hosted by Wexford Historical Society during the Wexford Festival Opera. – Yours, etc,

BERNARD BROWNE,

Old Ross,

Co Wexford
