Daniel Cohalan (1865- 1946) played a crucial role in mobilising Irish-American support for Ireland’s struggle for independence between 1916-21. He is best remembered today for his bitter feud with Éamon de Valera during the latter’s mission to the United States in 1919-20. Cohalan spent many summers with his family in Glandore in Cork where visitors included Pádraig Pearse and Douglas Hyde. Cohalan stayed in the Royal Marine Hotel in 1923 where he met and corresponded with Free State President of the Executive Council, William T. Cosgrave, Richard Mulcahy and Joe McGrath. In partnership with St. Joseph’s College, Long Island NY and the Gardiner Foundation. Talk by Dr. Michael Doorley, curator and author of new biography on Cohalan, will be held on Mon 2 Dec at 7.00pm, Studio Theatre, Level 1. All welcome, Free event with booking on Eventbrite.ie.
