3 June. From Ulster to Rome: a retrospective on the career of Hugh O’Neill, Earl of Tyrone (1550–1616).
Hugh O'Neill, Earl of Tyrone, died in the hospital of S. Spirito in Sassia in 1616 after eight years of exile in Rome. He was buried in S. Pietro in Montorio on the Janiculum Hill.
To commemorate this year's 400th anniversary of the Great O'Neill's death, the British School at Rome (BSR) holds an international symposium on the life and times of the Irish leader on 3 June from 10.00–18.00.
Organised by Dr Hiram Morgan and Dr James O’Neill from University College Cork, the event will include a tour of O'Neill sites on 4 June by Prof. Mícheál MacCraith from St Isidore's in Rome, with the support of the Irish embassy to Italy.
