We are delighted to be one of the local communities chosen by UCD and Abarta Heritage to host one of their free workshops for the Archaeology of the Irish Revolution in East Limerick Thursday 27th April at 7pm.
The Archaeology of the Revolution in East Limerick project is working with local communities to collect information about sites, people, incidents, or objects relating to the events occurring in East Limerick between 1917 and 1923.
During this revolutionary time, the people of Ireland witnessed the War of Independence, The Truce and the Civil War, which changed their lives forever.
Snippets of stories, memories and objects have been passed down through the years that we would love to record for future generations.
If you are interested in local history or have a story about your family or your area from this time, come along to our free Revolutionary Workshop in the Thomas Fitzgerald Centre (Eircode: V35 XY63), on Thursday, the 27th of April, at 7 pm.
All are welcome to attend this event, where the team will:
Share what’s been uncovered so far.
Show you how to fill in the online survey.
Encourage the community to share any stories or objects they might have from this time, e.g. photographs, letters, pieces of clothing, etc.*
We are interested in everyone’s stories or objects, whether they’re connected to the IRA, RIC or local civilians they form a huge part of our revolutionary history.
*Any personal objects shown will be photographed only, nothing will be taken away.
The Archaeology of the Revolution in East Limerick project is being undertaken by UCD
School of Archaeology in collaboration with Abarta Heritage and the Landscapes of
Revolution project through the Irish Research Council COALESCE funds.
