History lecture to focus on life of Michael Noyk

The latest event in the Law Society’s series of history lectures will explore the life and work of Lithuanian-born Irish solicitor Michael Noyk.

Noyk worked as legal advisor to Michael Collins during the War of Independence, and also became one of the principal solicitors acting on behalf of arrested Republican figures.

The Law Society’s Dr Barry Whelan will speak about Noyk’s life on Wednesday 24 January (6pm to 8pm) at the Moya Quinlan Lecture Theatre, Education Centre, Law Society of Ireland, Blackhall Place, Dublin 7.

Lithuanian-Irish co-operation

Dr Whelan has previously written about Noyk’s contribution to the cause of Irish freedom in the Gazette.

TP Kennedy (Director of Education, Law Society of Ireland) will welcome attendees at the January event, while the Lithuanian Ambassador, Marijus Gudynas, will speak about Lithuanian-Irish bilateral co-operation and the role of the Lithuanian-Jewish community.

Attendance is free, but you must register in advance.
