Republican Internment and the Prison ship Argenta 1922

Online talk by author Denise Kleinrichert on ‘Republican Internment and the Prison Ship Argenta 1922’.

An important historical reflection, this book tells the story of prisoners aboard the ship and includes interviews with former internees and countless descendants of internees.

Captives suffered malnourishment, disease, physical abuse, public abandonment, hunger strike and death. Some tried to escape and many emigrated. Tragedy and human rights issues remain which will be explored during this event.

The talk will include a local focus on Fermanagh and Omagh histories and will be followed by a facilitated Q & A session.
