VENUE: University College Dublin, Belfield, Dublin 4
Friday 9th September 2016 marks the centenary of the death at Ginchy in the Somme of Thomas Michael Kettle, Professor of National Economics at UCD and sometime MP for Tyrone East. However, Kettle was more than the sum of his parts and he constitutes one of the leading UCD academics to have been involved in national life both through politics and literary achievement. This event will explore the contribution of Tom Kettle to Irish history and also examine his work as a scholar, writer, and poet.
Poetry Ireland will organise a special event of its ‘Poetry Aloud’ series to coincide with this event.
