This year's Knocklong History Seminar will take place on Saturday 25th September. Titled ‘The Hard Road to the Truce’ it will focus on some of the violent events that caused revolutionary leaders to consider how tenable it was to sustain such losses and focused international attention on Britain's oppressive rule in Ireland.
