Josie Stallard and Liam Clarke: a revolution love story

A talk with Historian in Residence Liz Gillis

About this event

While fighting in the GPO in the Easter Rising, Volunteer Liam Clarke, a member of 'E' Company, 4th Battalion, Patrick Pearse's Company, was horrifically wounded. He evaded arrest and went to Kilkenny where he was cared for by Josie Stallard, his future wife. The two were inseparable, working together for the cause of Irish freedom. Josie was later the dispensary doctor in Rathcoole, Co. Dublin.

South Dublin County Decade of Centenaries Historian in Residence Liz Gillis will talk about this remarkable couple whose love survived war, imprisonment and the legacy of the conflict.
