New themes have been added to the national competition for 2016-2017 which are particularly relevant to Revolution in Ireland.
This year, at both primary and post-primary levels, there will be specific categories for projects on:
- Revolution in Ireland – a study of a political/revolutionary event from the 1912-1922 period, a particular aspect of the event, or an individual/group/organisation associated with it.
- Ireland and the First World War – a study of the Irish experience of the war from the perspective of an individual or group. This could involve a focus on a particular battle or a consideration of the entire 1914-1918 period.
- Women’s history in Ireland during the revolutionary period– a study of a particular individual/group/organisation/movement striving to improve the quality of women’s lives in Ireland in the 1912-1922 period.
- A local/regional studies theme from a century ago– a study of a particular historical event that affected your local or regional area in the 1912-1922 period.
The closing date is 13th March 2017.
