'The Redmonds and Waterford' book launch in Dublin
Wednesday 2 May | 6pm | Royal Irish Academy, 19 Dawson Street, Dublin 2.
Professor Michael Laffan will launch Pat McCarthy's The Redmonds and Waterford: a political dynasty, 1891–1952 at the Royal Irish Academy on Wednesday 2 May.
For sixty years the Redmonds – John, his son William Archer and his daughter-in-law Bridget – dominated the politics of Waterford city. From 1891 to 1922 a Redmond represented Waterford at Westminster and from 1923 until the death of Bridget Redmond in 1952, in Leinster House. This wide-ranging study offers a new insight into the political career of John Redmond and tells the story of William and Bridget Redmond.
