10:00 am
The Library Center, Auditorium
“Ireland and Its Religious Wars”
Tom Strong, a local attorney with Strong-Garner-Bauer, P.C will discuss the centuries-old conflict between the Catholic and Protestant people there. He will discuss St. Patrick, King Henry VIII, Oliver Cromwell, the Penal Laws of the 1690’s, the potato famine, the rebellions of 1848 and 1867, the Dublin lock-out, the Easter Rising of 1916 and the Irish Civil War.    Ireland is a story about two Christian sects that had so much hatred, disdain and animosity toward each other that they were willing to starve, maim and kill those who shared most of their DNA, just because they did not share their religious views.  There are lessons that we can learn from the Irish experience.
