'War, Risings and Rebellions beyond Ireland - the strategic context of 1916' - David Murphy, Maynooth University.

Ireland was not the only place to witness war-time rebellions, from the Maritz Revolt in South Africa (1914), to the Arab Revolt in the Middle East (1916-18) to the Russian Revolt (1917) internal conflict bubbled up in a number of combatant and non-combatant countries. This paper will explore the means by which the state dealt with such challenges during war-time, placing the Easter Rising in a wider, international context.

David Murphy lectures in military history and strategic studies at Maynooth University. He has written on Ireland and the Crimean War, Franco-Irish Military connections and the Arab Revolt. His most recent publication is Breaking Point of the French Army: the Nivelle Offensive of 1917 (Pen and Sword, 2015).

All lectures will be at 7pm in the Milestone Gallery, Glasnevin Cemetery Museum.

This event is organised by Glasnevin Trust as part of their Winter Lecture Series; 1916: Rebellion, War and Commemoration in Ireland and beyond.
