The Library is commemorating the 400th anniversary of the death of The Great Hugh O’Neill with an exhibition of his life and times which is currently on display. Hugh O'Neill c. 1550 – 20 July 1616, was an Irish Gaelic lord, Earl of Tyrone (known as the Great Earl) and was later created The Ó Néill. O'Neill's career was played out against the background of the Tudor conquest of Ireland, and he is best known for leading the resistance during the Nine Years' War, the strongest threat to English authority in Ireland since the revolt of Silken Thomas.

“This year we had a 1916 Rising exhibition followed by one on the Somme ,emphasising the Irish connection and Donegal ,in particular. Currently on display is an exhibition marking the 400th anniversary of the death of Hugh O Neill , in Rome ,in 1616. There are also occasional lectures ,usually on a historical theme , like the life of St Colmcille of Gartan; or the connection between Ireland and France ; or Russian poetry read in the original with translation. Other events include readings and art exhibitions by women on International womens’ day.”
