Come and explore the stories of the reformers & rebels who made the Belfast Charitable Society a “hotbed of radical activity” in the 1790s and those who spearhead the 1798 Rebellion!

This unique tour charts the story of radical Belfast and the 1798 Rebellion through those who lie buried in Clifton Street Cemetery. Visit the final resting place of Dr William Drennan, the originator of the Society of United Irishmen, those like the McCrackens and McCabes who supported the Rebellion alongside others including the Joys who opposed it.

Find out how the Charitable Society, and its members, emerged from this turbulent period of Irish history to continue its work irrespective of politics and conflict.
