Austin Currie

Austin Currie, 11th October 1939 ~ 9th November 2021

We have fond memories of Austin Currie’s visit to our school on Wednesday, 20th March, 2019. He spoke to the senior History students from St. Joseph’s College, Coláiste Phádraig and Lucan Community College. Mr. Currie spoke in depth about his life growing up in Northern Ireland and of his role in the Civil Rights Movement over 50 years ago. All present listened intently to the challenges that existed for many living in the North in the 1960s, how the efforts for change were received and how important the issue of reconciliation is as relevant to society today as it was then. Rest in Peace.
