“Intervals of Peace”: The artistic journey of a Civil War prisoner, a lecture by Professsor Tim McGLoughlin

10 May 2023 @ 7.00pm - 8.00pm


We are delighted to welcome Professor Tim McGloughlin to the Pearse Museum on Wednesday 10 May to give a lecture on his grandfather, Alfred McGloughlin, entitled “Intervals of Peace”: The artistic journey of a Civil War prisoner. A nephew of the Pearse brothers, Alfred McGloughlin was an architect, writer, artist and political activist. He lived in Rathfarnham with the Pearse family for several years, and played an important role in the staging and production design of many of the school plays. He was engaged in revolutionary politics during the War of Independence and, having taken the Anti-Treaty side, was later imprisoned during the Civil War. During that time he produced a remarkable series of portraits of his fellow prisoners which are currently on display in the Pearse Museum.  The lecture takes place on Wednesday, 10 May at 7pm. Admission is free.
