This talk will examine the 1798 Rebellion through some of the individuals associated with Clifton House and Belfast Charitable Society. These reformers & rebels made the Belfast Charitable Society a “hotbed of radical activity” in the 1790s. Hear about the Joys, McCrackens, McCabe & Cunningham who were on opposing sides of the 1798 Rebellion & how the Charitable Society emerged from it. We will also look at some of those individuals associated with this period who are buried in Clifton Street Cemetery.

This virtual live talk will be facilitated by our knowledgeable staff and volunteers using Zoom. Numbers for these hour-long sessions will be limited to 30, to allow for Q&A sessions at the end. The Meeting ID to join the online tour will be sent out the morning of the talk.
