The Queen Comes to Ireland
Thursday, April 11, 2013 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM
Queen Victoria visited Ireland four times during her 63-year reign as the Queen of England and the British Empire. The visits took place in: 1849, 1853, 1861, and 1900. The purpose and results differed for each trip to Ireland. None of the visits was a “state visit.” All were characterized as “private” visitations. A characterization for each visit would be as follows: 1849: reassuring; 1853: enabling; 1861: peaceful; 1900: a missed opportunity. We will discuss each of these visits and their impact on Irish history.

Dr. McFadden received his Ph.D. from Northern Illinois University in American History with a minor in Modern European History and Russian History. He has traveled extensively in Ireland and taught at Mary Immaculate College in Limerick, Ireland. He has been with UST since 1988, teaching as a history professor since 1997, and serving as president between 1988 and 1997 and again as interim president in Spring 2004. Dr. McFadden founded the Center for Irish Studies in 2002 and the Center opened in January 2003.
