2015 will mark the fourth outing of The History Festival of Ireland, having visited Lisnavagh House, Ducketts Grove and, last year, Huntington Castle. This year the festival will travel to Borris House to join forces with the Borris House Festival of Writing & Ideas on 5th, 6th and 7th June.
Expect explorations of World War I, the commemorations for the 1916 Rising, Yeats’s anniversary, and Dublin-born Arthur Wellesley (later the Duke of Wellington) and the battle of Waterloo.
Details will begin to emerge in November of speakers expected to attend.
