1916 Exhibition in the County Library

South Dublin Libraries’ Decade of Centenaries events continue with the launch of our 1916 exhibition.

The exhibition contains artifacts from many private and public collections, and sincere thanks is due to those individuals and institutions who have so generously lent their items for display.

The exhibition is slanted towards local involvement in the Rising and includes a map of the (now) South Dublin area with information as to how the preparations went on in that  area. Although no fighting took place in the villages, they played their part in making the Rising happen with contributions like route marches, planning, recruiting and even supplying the paper on which the Proclamation was printed.

The exhibition runs until the 27th of May.
