PRONI hosted talks in Belfast for June

From the latest newsletter from PRONI in Belfast (, details on events coming soon in June:

TALK: The Hidden History of Protestants and the Irish Language
Thursday 11th June, 1pm to 2pm

Linda Ervine, Irish Language Development Officer at East Belfast Mission, will be in PRONI to deliver a talk that will look directly at the historical links between Protestants and the Irish Language.

LUNCHTIME POETRY: War Words: poetry inspired by the First and Second World Wars
Monday 30 June, 1pm to 2pm

PRONI is pleased to announce details of a special poetry reading on the theme of war. The First and Second World Wars inspired gifted writers from Wilfred Owen to Timothy Corsellis to commit to paper their personal wartime narratives. These texts, often graphic and harrowing, have gone on to become parts of the world's cultural fabric. Join us to hear two locally-based writers who have been similarly inspired.
