Annual Meeting 19/10/2022 Cyfarfod Blynyddol

After a break of 3 years due to the Covid pandemic, we will be holding our annual meeting online via Zoom at 8pm on Wednesday, 19th October. It’s now over 22 years since the society was set up, and we’d like to take the opportunity in this meeting to review the current structure of the society and decide whether it continues to meet the needs of Welsh people living in Ireland or whether a different model would function more effectively.

Please join us online on the 19th October to take part in the discussion and help determine the way forward for the Welsh community in Ireland. Send an email to info@welshsociety.ie for joining instructions.

Ar ôl toriad o 3 blynedd oherwydd y pandemig Covid, byddwn yn cynnal ein cyfarfod blynyddol ar-lein drwy Zoom am 8pm nos Fercher, 19eg Hydref. Mae dros 22 mlynedd wedi mynd heibio ers sefydlu’r gymdeithas, a hoffem fanteisio ar y cyfle yn y cyfarfod hwn i adolygu strwythur presennol y gymdeithas a phenderfynu a ydy’n parhau i ddiwallu anghenion y Cymry sy’n byw yn Iwerddon neu a byddai model gwahanol yn gweithio’n fwy effeithiol.

Ymunwch â ni ar-lein ar y 19eg o Hydref i gyfrannu at y drafodaeth ac i helpu i benderfynu’r ffordd ymlaen ar gyfer y gymuned Gymraeg yn Iwerddon. Anfonwch e-bost at info@welshsociety.ie am fanylion ymuno.

IACES Annual Lecture by Adam Price AS/MS, Leader of Plaid Cymru – 8 July in Dublin

Filling the Void: Scotland, Ireland, Wales and the Future of European Democracy

8 July, 11:00 – 12:30, in person at NUI, 49 Merrion Square, Dublin 2 and online via livestream.

In this year’s IACES (Irish Association for Contemporary European Studies) Annual Lecture, inspired by and seeking to respond to the challenge laid down in the late Peter Mair’s Ruling the Void: the Hollowing of Western Democracy, Plaid Cymru Leader, Adam Price, will explore whether and how political parties can be laboratories for democratic renewal. He will examine, in particular, the role of and relationship between the leading nationalist forces in Scotland, Ireland and Wales – the SNP, Sinn Féin and Plaid Cymru – arguing that their campaigns for democratic self-government provide an opportunity to demonstrate how the failings of western democracy can be addressed. The European dimension to these campaigns will also be explored.
