John FitzGerald
John FitzGerald
Librarian at University College Cork

John FitzGerald is The Librarian at University College Cork and is also the Commissioning Editor of new books on history in Ireland that have taken the country by storm. The Atlas of the Great Irish Famine was Winner of the Best Irish Published Book in 2012, while its later companion publication, Atlas of the Irish Revolution, was Ireland’s Book of the Year in 2017 when it was first published.

Mr. FitzGerald’s presentation will describe new understanding of the causes and long-term effects of the Great Famine – the most pivotal event in modern Irish history, with implications that cannot be underestimated. Over a million people perished between 1845-1852, and well over a million others fled to other locales within Europe and America. By 1850, the Irish made up a quarter of the population in Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, and Baltimore. The 2000 US census had 41 million people claim Irish ancestry, or one in five white Americans.

Dan Mulhall

Two important elections – last month in Northern Ireland and one scheduled to occur the week before our luncheon event in Ireland early-February. Ambassador Mulhall will briefly update us on what happened in these important events and, with his characteristic aplomb, will describe some of the issues involved.
