As part of Heritage Week, a nice calendar of events has been put together by a few of us in the Historical Insights team, in conjunction with the National Museum of Ireland and others. This programme largely involves events with a focus on the Dublin 7 area around the Collins Barracks branch of the National Museum, ranging from the revolutionary history of the area to its rich social history. There are also walking tours of the area, with John Gibney exploring the area around the Museum, while I’ll be looking at the housing in Dublin historically. If you’d like to attend any events on the below programme, email email@example.com
I’m participating in two events for this programme. The times and meeting information can be found in the poster below.
