A Glimpse into 1923 with Fin Dwyer

Cycles: Spokes

What was life like for Carlovians back in 1923?

Historian, author and podcaster, Fin Dwyer discovers what life was like for Carlovians back in 1923. Fin’s meticulously researched and hugely popular Irish History Podcast has uncovered some of the most fascinating stories from our past, including about the Great Hunger, the Norman Invasion, and Ireland’s involvement in the Spanish Civil War.


This talk is part of Spokes, a series of discussions and workshops about our sense of place within County Carlow. Spokes hosts conversations on language, cycling, ecology and more.


Spokes is part of Cycles, a community engagement project happening across Hacketstown, Rathvilly, Graiguecullen and Tullow, and led by artists Michelle Browne and Eszter Némethi. Cycles will culminate in a large outdoor cycling and performance event in September 2023.

Funded by ART:2023, a Decade of Centenaries programme

Presented by The Arts Council | An Chomhairle Ealaíon, in association with the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.

This project is created in partnership with Carlow Sports Partnership, Carlow County Council Arts Office, Carlow County Development Partnership, Carlow County Library, Carlow Museum and Carlow Environmental Network.
