Joe Austin is a veteran of the Republican movement and a member of the National Graves Association. Philip Orr, having been a schoolteacher, is a local historian, a writer and facilitator. This is an opportunity to hear about the work Philip and Joe have done around these two poignant symbols. The evening will have both historical and contemporary contexts. You are invited to join us for this evening to think through this topic which is highlighted in a striking line in Philip's play Halfway House, when Bronagh turns to Valerie and says, "You can parade your courage in public but we can't!"
