On the Brink: The Politics of Conflict 1914-1916 has been supported by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Thanks to National Lottery players, we have been able to actively engage local communities in the North East of Ireland with a multi-perspective approach to exploring the contemporary impact of the outbreak of the First World War on the home front; the Easter Rising and Battle of the Somme within a national and international context; and their current legacies.
