Set in the Pillar Room in the Rotunda Hospital, the 1914 Parliament will sit under the watchful eye of a very special Honorary Speaker, Mannix Flynn to hear passionate proposals from speakers for how life in Dublin and Ireland can be improved over the next 100 years, recalling the era of James Joyce’s Dubliners. You, the audience, are part of the Parliament and you can question the speakers on their motions and vote to approve such proposals as votes for women, Home Rule for Ireland, the abolition of censorship, and themes addressed in Joyce’s Dubliners stories.
The Pillar Room, Rotunda Hospital, Dublin 1. Free. No booking required. Access via blue gate beside Gate Theatre on Cavendish Row. Parking €6 in the adjacent Rotunda Hospital complex.
