The 2021 Mícheál Ó Cléirigh Summer School will be held over the weekend of 7th-9th May. The theme of the 2021 Summer School will be “Women in Turbulent Times 1551- 1651″ which will examine the role women played in this century of  Irish history. Their story was largely forgotten but more recent research into the period has revealed a story of women taking charge of their families and property whilst their fathers, brothers or husbands were exiled, imprisoned or dead during this most turbulent time in Irish history
