“’Ireland at the Bar’: Language, Law and Murder in Nineteenth-Century Ireland” – A lecture on the execution of Myles Joyce, condemned because of a language barrier for an 1882 County Mayo murder he did not commit.

The poetry reading by Margaret Kelleher will be delivered remotely to Montclair State University students and interested faculty and staff. 

The lecture will probably take place on the originally scheduled date, Tuesday 21st April, 2:30 - 3:30.  

However, if you would like to find out the exact dates and times once all the technical details have been determined, please get in touch with Professor Lucy McDiarmid.

This event is one in the Marie Frazee-Baldassarre Lecture and Poetry Series. The purpose of these visits is not only to provide stimulating conversation but to enrich the lives of Montclair State University students, faculty, and staff by introducing them to many of the best Irish poets and Irish Studies scholars working today.
