A reminder of our next Lecture - tomorrow night - on a very interesting but little-known Limerick woman.
Lizzie Twigg was a late nineteenth-early twentieth century Limerick poet, a protégé of A.E. (George Russell) and a strong Irish Nationalist. Her poetry was published under her own name in journals and newspapers such as the Irish Rosary and the United Irishman and in 1904 she published a volume of her writings, Songs and Poems, under her Gaelic name, Eilís Ní Chraoibhín, for which Canon Sheehan wrote the introduction. She has also attracted some scholarly attention due to her mention by James Joyce in Ulysses.
Our member Milo Spillane has research the life and career of Lizzie Twigg and will present the results of his work at 8.00pm in Room T.1.17 Tara Bdg,, Mary I. College, SCR.
