Icons Lecture Series

Icons Lecture Series

Join two great historians, Dr Patrick Geoghegan and Dr Mary McAuliffe, as they talk about some of the most interesting figures in Irish history.

The subjects of this lecture series were men and women of strong views – and a determination to forge a new path. Reluctant to accept the old pieties, some are not as widely remembered as they should be, but all of them were iconic.

Sponsored by Santa Rita Estates, there will be a wine reception between the talks on each evening. And at the end of the series, our audience will nominate one of the six subjects for a statue in the Little Museum.

In this live lecture series you will meet two exceptional historians and passionate communicators. You will also meet other supporters of the Little Museum over a glass of wine in the convivial surroundings of this much-loved museum.

Join us this autumn as we make history in the Little Museum of Dublin. Season tickets cost €60. To avoid disappointment, please book early.
