The SSNCI is delighted to announce that two members of the Society have been awarded bursaries, to the value of €150 each, to present their research at our Annual Conference at the University of Leicester in June 2019. They are:
MARIA BYRNE (Maynooth University)
“A Community’s Dream for a Better Future in Nineteenth-Century Ireland: Military Band Music at the 1867 Drogheda Bazaar”
PATRICIA MCKEE (Trinity College Dublin)
“Prophetic Dreams and Practical Realities, Exploring how the Future was Envisaged in Two Key Areas: Academical Lectures on Prophecy and the Founding of a New Public School for the Education of Boys”
This is the first year that our bursary scheme has run, and we hope to be able to continue it in future years. These bursaries are funded by the members of the Society.
