#MadisonWI elects it’s first lesbian mayor and it’s first all-woman school board tonight. Proud to have each of these elected officials. Excited for Madison’s queer feminist future, perhaps it will be one that actually begins to address the massive racial issues in the city.

On 21 January 1919, our parliamentary democracy began when the First Dáil met in the Round Room of Dublin’s Mansion House, three years before the end of British rule in this part of Ireland.
The Dáil had to meet in private after it was banned in September 1919.

Report on the First Dáil, headlined ‘Cloud-Cuckoo Land’ which appeared in the Irish Times, then a pro-unionist newspaper. One of many fascinating exhibits in anniversary exhibition at Leinster House. Booking closed, but there’s talk of re-staging it later in the year.
#Dáil100 2
The Leinster House is a terrific evocation, in Irish and English, of the Dáil’s first day in 1919 and history since then. This spectacularly wrong prediction by Field Marshal French, then British Lord Lieutenant in Ireland, caught my eye.
