TALK & DISPLAY: Material Culture of the Irish Revolution

April 29, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm UTC+0

Objects laid out on table including candle, gun, broach and sword.

Between the Easter Rising of 1916 and the end of the Civil War in 1923 Ireland experienced a political and military struggle that led to the foundation of the Irish Free State. To mark the centenary of the end of the Civil War, Dave Swift of Claíomh will give an interactive talk and living-history demonstration of the material culture of the Irish revolution.

This event is free of charge but as places are limited advance booking is essential. Call Galway City Museum on (091) 532460 or email .

This event has been curated as part of Galway City Council’s Decade of Centenaries Programme 2023 with funding from the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.
