Plots and Plotters

Plots and Plotters will be live from Belfast, Northern Ireland, via Zoom. Explore the history of the reformers & rebels who made the Belfast Charitable Society a “hotbed of radical activity” in the 1790s in this virtual talk. Hear about the Joys, McCrackens, McCabe & Cunningham who were on opposing sides of the 1798 United Irishmen Rebellion and how the Charitable Society, and its members, emerged from it, including Dr. James Campbell White who went into exile in the United States.

Presented by Clifton House, the home of the Belfast Charitable Society and the original Poor House in Belfast.

Numbers for these hour-long sessions will be limited to allow for a Q&A session at the end. The Zoom meeting login to join the talk will be emailed to you on the morning of the event.
