Illustrated Lecture - 'Her Story'

Blarney & District Historical Society presents an illustrated lecture titled Blarney 1918 - Anti-Conscription - Armistice - Election in Scoil Mhuire Gan Smal (Blarney Secondary School).

In April 1918 the British government attempted to impose conscription in Ireland by imposing a law which was passed but never put into effect. No Irish person was ever drafted into the British Army. The Armistice of 11 November 1918  brought an end to fighting on land, sea and air in World War I between the Allies and Germany.
