A graphic novel exploring the life of Alice Milligan and her role in the revival of Irish culture during the early 20th century is available to download and view.
Developed by the Nerve Centre's Creative Centenaries project, in conjunction with Revolve Comics, the short story charts some of the experiences of Alice Milligan and her work in the preservation of Irish cultures and beliefs. With thanks to historical consultant Catherine Morris.
In printed form, the novel sits back to back with the story of First World War poet Francis Ledwidge.
The comic book is just one of a number of resources being developed for the Creative Centenaries project, including other publications on the Easter Rising, Battle of the Somme and sinking of the Lusitania. The resource has been designed with an education pack for use at a Key Stage Three audience with background information and interactive learning tasks designed around each story.
