The Parnell Society

In 2017 the Parnell Summer School will take place from 13-17 August at Avondale House, Rathdrum, Co Wicklow.

Contemporary Irish society, like other societies around us now and societies in the past, is fascinated to the point of obsession with crime. We can see this in our politics, in the press, in our popular culture. The related issues of appropriate punishment and justice have sometimes been afforded been less attention.

In considering these issues together, the 2017 Parnell Summer School will examine Ireland today, including contemporary criminal, policing, penal and judicial policy. It will also, however, consider their inter-connected histories and the manner in which these are, and have been, represented in our culture, literature and cinema.

Fees Daily rate for attendance at the Summer School (including lunch) is €70.
Inclusive cost: €260 if paid in full before 4th August 2016, and €275 after that date. The inclusive fee covers all lectures and events, coffee and lunch (Monday to Thursday) and the Summer School Gala Dinner.and the Summer School Gala Dinner.
