Countess Markievicz Lecture

Publications

The Countess Markievicz Memorial Lecture was established by the Irish Association for Industrial Relations with the support of the Department of Labour. Countess Markievicz was first Minister for Labour of the newly independent Irish State. The object of the Memorial Lecture is to provide an occasion for a substantive contribution to discussion in the Industrial Relations area by a distinguished practitioner or academic. Many high profile speakers have given the lecture in the past including former President Mary Robinson, Bertie Ahern, Des Geraghty, John Kelly, Bill Roche and Paul Teague. The 2019 lecture was delivered jointly by Prof. Kate Pickett and Prof. Richard Wilkinson on 'The Social and Psychological Costs of Inequality'.
