1916 School Programme
Our new Reliving History workshop is becoming a great success. This new School Programme is to commemorate 1916 and we have designed it in conjunction with the Ireland 1916/2016 (Longford) committee. We focus on the role of the Arts in inspiring the Rising, and offer hands-on experiences of what life was like 100 years ago. As well as a guided tour of our dedicated 1916 room an art workshop is included. Call us  to book your class a place on one of our fun-filled educational sessions. Don't forget you can now book two workshops on the one day for €7 per pupil. See full details of all available school programmes here.
