On Thursday I had the privilege of attending a talk by Cormac O’Malley, organised by the 1916-21 Club. The Club, founded in the 1940s are very active in preserving and promoting the history of our War of Independence, or the Tan War. Visit their website to access a great resource for both the serious researcher and those who have a casual interest.

The talk was held in City Hall, Dublin. It’s a striking venue but it’s rotunda style hall makes for poor acoustics. The organisers promptly sorted out the sound while Cormac O’Malley made friendly and affable remarks to the audience. His warm manner continued through out his talk on his father Ernie. It was peppered with obscure but interesting details from his father’s life and the times he lived in. He shared great insight into his father with the packed out hall and nobody complained when he went over time. It was great to learn more about

Ernie’s passion for the arts and folklore. It adds a very touching new element to his work for me.

Cormac is an engaging speaker, with well timed humour and a knack for simplifying a point. With that in mind, I’m looking forward to reading his books, including “No Surrender Here” and “Broken Landscapes”.  In the footsteps of his father, Cormac is preserving and sharing the history of the time with his new website www.ernieomalley.com.
