Kindling The Flame: 150 Years of the INTO

Kindling The Flame Book Launch

You are invited to the book launch of “Kindling the Flame: 150 Years of the Irish National Teachers’ Organisation” on Friday 15th December 2017 at 5.30pm.  The venue will be Linen Hall Library, 17 Donegall Square North, Belfast.

This is a significant event for INTO, initiating our commemoration of 150 years (1868-2018) of Ireland’s longest-established, largest and only all-island teachers’ union.

Dr. Niamh Puirséil has researched and written this book over a number of years. Having her skills and insights as a historian has been of great value. We are very pleased also that Dr Éamon Phoenix (political historian, broadcaster and member of the Taoiseach's Expert Advisory Group on Centenaries) has agreed to formally launch the publication.

The cover cost of the book is expected to be £22.00; we intend to have the book on sale at a specially discounted price at the launch. 

This event will be hosted by INTO President John Boyle, with Dr Éamon Phoenix  launching the book and Niamh Puirséil also speaking. Refreshments and canapés will be served.

Please RSVP to: by 5.00pm on Thursday 14 December 2017.

Date: Friday, 1 December 17
