Following the success of last year’s Lily and Poppy event, The Institute of Irish Studies is delighted to continue this strand of its collaboration with the Liverpool Irish Festival. This year we will be hosting Northern Irish politicians Dawn Purvis (former leader, Progressive Unionist Party) and Elisha McCallion (MP for Foyle and former Mayor of Derry, Sinn Féin), who will discuss the role of women in reconciliation, particularly within Ireland. The discussion will be chaired by Dr Diane Urquhart (Reader, The Institute of Irish Studies)
