MCS welcomed three professional historians along, with Mr Kevin Manning, who gave presentations this week to our TY students, to commemorate 1918.  Paul O Brien, military historian and author of fifteen books gave a presentation on 'Operation Michael and The Conscription Crisis'.  Historian-in-Residence DCC, Cathy Scuffil, gave a presentation on significant events of 1918.  And historian, author and archivist with RTÉ, currently working on 'The History Show', gave a presentation on 'The Vote For Women', which came into law in 1918.  What an enriching experience and we are grateful to them and to Mr Manning for keeping our National history alive and well in MCS!
