Join us for Irish Sea Crossings and Irish Sea Stories, two exciting talks presented in partnership with the Ports Past and Present Project by Prof Claire Connolly and Dr James Smith. These talks will investigate the Irish Sea and its place in the shared Irish and British imagination. Ports, Past and Present, funded by the European Regional Development Fund via the Ireland Wales Co-operation Programme, revisits the cultural heritage of the Irish Sea’s crossings and finds new ways of telling Irish Sea stories.
