    'Ireland in Rebellion' - Free Online History Course
    The public is being invited to explore the forces that shaped modern Ireland through a free online history course delivered by Trinity College Dublin. The 14-week course, taught online by Trinity historians and other experts, is aimed at the general public as well as second level teachers and students.

    The course Ireland in Rebellion, 1782-1916, will focus on the events and individuals which led to the creation of the independent Irish state, beginning with the winning of legislative independence, and exploring the competing forces of constitutional nationalism and radicalism.

    Each week four mini lectures and an interview with a leading expert will be released online via Trinity’s YouTube channel and ITunes U. Weekly content will be 75 minutes long and will be made available every Friday. The first week of lectures, focusing on The Challenge of the 1916 Rising: Irish History from the American War of Independence to the First World War, is now available online.

    It's opportunities like that that come along now and then to learn more about the country my dad left behind for a new life after a hard life in Co Cork that make me wish that I lived nearer to Ireland than I do.

    Sure, it's on-line and therefore accessible to all, but nothing beats being able to talk directly to people about it.
