Br Gerry Stewart, Brian Siggins and Carole Flanagan

We were delighted to welcome Brian Siggins to Ringsend College on Friday, 11th March. Brian is a well-known local historian and an expert on all things Ringsend! Brian spoke to students about the militarized and industrialized nature of Ringsend in the past, and highlighted the role of local man Michael Malone in the Battle of Mount Street. Brian also revealed where some physical reminders of the Rising can be found, including bullet holes in the Belfry of Haddington Road Church and the exterior of the Malting Tower in Clanwilliam Street!
