The Irish in New York: Walking Tour Na hÉireannaigh i Nua-Eabhrac: Turas Siúlóide

  • Start / Tús:
  • 10.04.16

A walking tour will take place in New York.

Turas siúlóide ar na háiteanna i Nua-Eabhrac.

A tour of the New York sites associated with 1916 will take place on 10 April.

The tour will be led by the historian of Irish New York John T. Ridge. More details:

New York City was a centre for secret preparations for the Irish Rebellion in 1916. Many of the sites associated with Irish-American support for the militant nationalists in Ireland were located an easy stroll from New York’s City Hall and can still be seen today.

On this special tour, stops will include the old Gaelic American newspaper building where fervent Fenian John Devoy helped plan the insurrection and where 1916 martyr Roger Casement visited.

Also included will be the headquarters of the Irish Relief Fund where money was raised for victims of the Rising, and the Emmet and McNevin monuments at St. Paul’s Chapel where the secret society Clan na Gael annually commemorated the 1798 Rebellion.

A walk down Chambers Street will recall Irish exile O’Donovan Rossa whose 1915 burial in Dublin signaled the emotional rebirth of militant nationalism just a few months before the Rising.

Other sites associated with 1916 such as the Irish Race Convention site, the Irish World newspaper building, and the offices of Jeremiah O’Leary, prominent lawyer and Irish-American activist, whose sensational “treason” trial became a symbol for free speech, will also be visited.
