The venue for the Desmond Greaves Summer School is the Pearse Centre, a purpose-built theatre space accessible through number 27 Pearse Street. This house on Pearse Street is the boyhood home of 1916 leader Pádraig Pearse; a building in part restored to its period look and held in trust by the Ireland Institute for Historical and Cultural Studies.

The Greaves Summer School has over its 25 years been the forum for looking back over Ireland’s socialist heritage while looking forward to address issues concerning Ireland's place in the wider world in the twenty-first century.

Desmond Greaves’ writings about the necessity of national sovereignty are especially relevant today as the Irish state finds itself completely emasculated within Euro-American structures.

Desmond Greaves was editor of The Irish Democrat, the magazine of the Connolly Association. Greaves championed the idea of campaigning for Civil Rights against Unionist domination in the North of Ireland. The Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association grew out of the Wolfe Tone Society in the 1960’s. Greaves’ legacy lies in his vision of Ireland, a message that echoes Tone’s, to unite Irish people throughout the island to work together in their common economic and social interest.
