The Religious Society of Friends, commonly known as Quakers, have had a Meeting House on Eustace Street since 1692. A notably pacificist group whose diverse beliefs are rooted in Christianity, Quakers have made a broad and positive contribution to Irish life over the centuries and names such as Bewley and Jacob attest to their success in commercial life.
In this informal talk, current members of the Eustace Street Meeting will reflect on the heritage of the Quakers in Ireland, their current activities and of the buildings at 5-6 Eustace Street in particular. This is also a chance to see some video footage of the buildings as they were when still in use as a Meeting House in the 1980s.
This event is FREE but ticketed; please email the IFI Box Office or call 01 679 3477 to book your seat.
This event is part of IFI20: Celebrating 20 Years in Temple Bar.
