She is the author of a number of articles and is currently preparing her book on the history of child welfare in Ireland for publication, titled Child Welfare, the NSPCC, and the State in Ireland: 1889-1956. She recently completed a history of the Haematology Association of Ireland (HAI),
and her next project is a comparative history of child welfare in Ireland, Northern Ireland and Britain. She will be speaking on child welfare and class in Ireland, in particular the discrimination against poor and working class children by the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children and the continued use of

Abortion in Ireland – Where To From Here?
Dr Mary Favier is a Cork based GP and a founder member of Doctors For Choice (Ireland). Active in health politics generally she was recently involved in the provision of a supporting brief in the European Court of Human Rights ruling (“the ABC Case”) that condemned the Irish Government’s record on the provision of abortion in Ireland.
Tuesday 17th May
Dr. John Borgonovo
Cork Labour and the Irish Revolution, 1916-1922
Public consciousness of 'Rebel Cork' during the War of Independence conjures images of the martyred Lord Mayors, the burning of the city centre, and flying column ambushes at Kilmichael and elsewhere. However, less obvious and less violent activities were equally important to the success of the independence movement. This lecture will consider the role of Cork labour during the 1916 to 1922 period. The left/right divide in Irish revolutionary politics will be considered, as will the mass mobilization that led some trade unionists and Republicans to believe they were on the cusp of securing a true workers' Republic.
