Date/Time Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th September 2016
Event: Symposium: 'The World of William Penn: Toleration and Migration"
Location: U.C.C., Cork
Additional Information: William Penn serves as a huge link between County Cork and the United States of America. Penn, with connections to Macroom and Shanagarry, founded the City of Pennsylvania, where c. 100 years later (1776) the American Declaration of Independence was signed. Thanks to Dr. Hiram Morgan and Ruth Canning of U.C.C.'s School of History, there will be a symposium on William Penn taking place at the end of September in U.C.C.
