Philip Orr and Nigel Henderson will give a talk at the Ulster Museum titled 'Gallipoli - An Irish Battle, An Australian Myth'.

The talk on Saturday 14 February will use excerpts from Peter Weir's Gallipoli film to analyse the mythology of Anzac and how the it has contributed to the exclusion of other Gallipoli stories. 

There will aslo be a summary of the numbers of men from Irish regiments that are buried or commemorated at Gallipoli, in comparison to those from other countries. 

Both men will talk about their respective areas for approximately 50 minutes with an interval between both.
