History of early 20th Century Ireland exhibition in Muckross
Calling all history buffs – if you’re free on Saturday 29th March and out and about in Killarney, you should definitely consider checking out the Revolutionary Decade Roadshow the UCC History Society will be putting on in the Schoolhouse in Muckross.
The exhibition will be looking at Ireland’s revolutionary decade between 1912 and 1923 that saw The Easter Rising, The War of Independence and the Civil War ravage the country in a remarkably short space of time. It’s arguably the most defining period of modern Irish history so the roadshow should have plenty to showcase.
There’ll be a number of other historical societies there who will be available for discussion and queries with regards to this period and there’ll be lots of historical memorabilia to peruse and historical re-enactments to enjoy. You’re also invited to bring any documents or memorabilia you might own from that period along.
It sounds an absolute treat and best of all it’s free of charge. It kicks off at 12pm and will continue on until 5pm. The Schoolhouse is located just past the entrance to Muckross House. It’s on the main road so it’s hard to miss but here’s a picture of it anyway – http://www.muckross-house.ie/muckross/corporate/the-schoolhouse/.
