An Anglo-Irish Love Affair – The Story of Kitty O’Shea and Charles Stewart Parnell: Fri 16 Mar 2018

March 16 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

£12.00

To Ireland I give my life, to you I give my love,” Parnell wrote to ‘Kitty’ O’Shea. Charles Stewart Parnell was a prominent Irish Nationalist politician and one of the most powerful figures in the House of Commons in the 19th century. His adultery with Kitty O’Shea scandalized society and cost him his career. This talk will examine their relationship, where they lived in London and Sussex, and its dramatic impact on Anglo-Irish history.

What better way to greet St Patrick’s Day than to find out about the nineteenth century’s most explosive love affair, which altered the course of Anglo-Irish history?
