The College Historical Society is the world’s oldest undergraduate society. Since its inception 250 years ago it has striven to promote public discourse in Trinity College and platform students and guest speakers alike. As well as providing the scene for Edmund Burke, Theobald Wolfe Tone, and Robert Emmet’s first steps into political debate, the Society has played a part in the formative years of great Irish writers such as Oliver Goldsmith, Oscar Wilde, and Samuel Beckett.
Short lectures on the Society’s history will be held in the college debating chamber before attendees will be allowed to explore the Hist’s home – the Graduate’s Memorial Building.
