Stasko: the Unknown Markiewicz – Lecture by Patrick Quigley

February 29, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

Irish Polish Society, 20 Fitzwilliam Place, Dublin 2
Sunday, 4 March @ 16.00.
Stanislaus (Stasko) Markiewiecz was overshadowed by his famous father and stepmother, Casimir and Constance.
He was educated in Ireland, conscripted into the Russian Navy in World War One and held hostage by the Bolsheviks. One of his letters on a cloth was smuggled out of Russia in a coat.
His story is a fascinating episode in the connection between Ireland and Poland. The lecture will be accompanied by unpublished pictures and materials.
Refreshments. All welcome.
