Revolutionary Songs: A Centennial Celebration of the Irish Revolution of 1916

Wednesday, 1 February 2017 - 12:00pm to 1:20pm


Peadar MacMahon’s performance will examine the importance and role of songs as tools in the creation of the nationalist movement in Ireland. It is hoped that those in attendance will come away with a clearer view of Irish history and an appreciation for the power of song.



Peadar MacMahon is a proud native of Limerick, an ancient walled city in the west of Ireland. His strength lies in his unique interpretation of historic songs. His latest project is a CD and show of the life and works of one of Ireland’s greatest songwriters, Percy French (1852-1920).
