Each year, we host a launch for the newest volume of the Review. We have hosted a number of guests who have delivered passionate speeches about Irish politics and society. Recent guests have included Senator David Norris, former Senator Averil Power, and Foreign Correspondent of the Irish Times, Patrick Smyth. Be sure to check out our launch of the next volume!
Launch of the 33rd Edition
The launch of Volume XXXIII was held on April 4th, 2023. We were joined by guest speakers Senator Lynn Ruane and Prof. Emeritus Stephen Mennell.
We hosted online events during the pandemic which were thoroughly enjoyable, like the launch of Volume XXXI which featured Senator Lynn Ruane and Dr. Páraic Kerrigan as our guest speakers.
The SPR is also committed to hosting events that shed light on the political and social issues in Ireland.
