'The Pram that helped the Rising' in Swanlinbar

'The Pram the helped the Rising: A Tribute to the Irish Community Butte Montana, 1916-
1919', a new multi-media storytelling event developed by Visual Artist Amanda Jane Graham and Traditional Musician Martin Donohoe, is being hosted in a family event in St Mary’s Hall, Swanlinbar on Sunday 5th June 2016, 7.30pm. Admission is €5.
 
The event will take place as part of the Cavan County Fleadh, which is hosted in Swanlinbar from 3rd-6th June.
 
This live event tells a personal story that was passed down through three generations. We hear of the
unexpected links between one family’s links to the Easter Rising, Eamon De Valera and Cavan’s own
Marcus Daly, owner of the Anaconda Copper Mine in Butte, Montana, USA.
 
How did the mattress in three year old Mary Timmins doll’s pram help to fund the Irish Rising of 1916?
THE PRAM THAT HELPED THE RISING was developed as part of the Cavan Curators in Residence by Annette Moloney and Maeve Mulrennan. 
 
This project was funded by Cavan County Council Arts Office and the Arts Council.
