GUIDED TOUR: The Revolution in a Dozen Objects

The Revolution in Galway, 1913-1923 exhibition explores the Easter Rising, War of Independence and Civil War from a Galway perspective. It features a diverse range of objects – a piper’s cap belonging Éamonn Ceannt, a chess piece carved by Liam Mellows while imprisoned in Mountjoy and a German rifle landed aboard the Asgard – each with their own fascinating story.

As places are limited, advance booking is advised – call the museum on (091) 532460.
