Armistice Day 11th November
  

A poignant tribute by Joe Duffy to the Irish who died in World War I

Author and broadcaster Joe Duffy spoke at a commemoration event at Woodenbridge Memorial Park to mark the lives lost in WWI by Irish soliders and civilians, including 1,124 from county Wicklow.

Joe used the occasion to appeal for support for a memorial to the children killed in the 1916 Rising in Dublin, following the destruction of the Necrology Wall in Glasnevin. The wall commemorated equally all of the Irish and British civilian, military, police and rebel dead in the fighting Easter Week 1916.
 
Thank you to Joe for kindly sending the Princess Grace Irish Library a signed copy of his book 'Children of the Rising' and also a copy of 'Children of the Troubles - The untold story of the children killed in the Northern Ireland Conflict'. The latter book was co-written with author Freya McClements, who is also the Northern Correspondent with The Irish Times.

Screening of film - adaptation of Joyce's The Dead
  

By the Institut Audiovisuel de Monaco at the Théatre des Variétés

The film is an adaptation of the short story of the same name by James Joyce, which was first published in 1914 as a story in Dubliners.  The drama film - set in Dublin in 1904 - was directed by John Huston, written by his son Tony, and stars his daughter Anjelica and Donal McCann. An international co-production, it was Huston's last as director, and it was released several months after his death.

The film will be shown at 8pm in its original format in English with subtitles.
