Museum Highlights

I thought I would share a thread from anouther forum to this one.

One of the main displays at the moment is "The Irish at War at Home and Abroad from 1550" which tries to cover the Irish military contribution to a lot of European military history, including both sides of WWI, the Franco Prussian war, the napoleonic wars, Crimea, and too many more to mention right up to current UN & anti-terrorits roles. The other main exhibition is 'The British Garrison in Ireland'.

Here are some pictures I thought some members may enjoy. The collections cover a LOT of areas of history, WWI, the wild Geese, 1916, War of Independence, Civil War and lots more. I was not permitted to photograph all areas but here are a few I managed to get :
