The City Walls Heritage Project has announced that the proceedings of the recent History Ireland Hedge School in Derry are now available to view on-line.

The event at the Verbal Arts Centre was organised with the support of the Walls Project and the Irish Association. The topic for the Derry Hedge School was “Protestant republicans & Catholic royalists: legacies of the Glorious Revolution”.

The Hedge School particularly focused on the emergence of the United Irishmen and the Orange Order in the century after the Glorious Revolution.
