Gallery Tour: Women in the Decade of Centenaries

Irish history undoubtedly went through stark changes during the revolutionary period of 1913-1923, but how did women's lives change, if at all? 

Join historian Edward Oakes on a tour of Collins Barracks on Sunday 30th at 3 pm which explores the impact of this historic period on the lives of Irish women, from the 1913 Lockout to the enactment of the Free State
Constitution and beyond. 

Places are allocated on a first-come basis 15 minutes before tour starts.

The dress, of white cotton crochet over olive green silk, was worn by President O’Kelly’s wife, Phyllis, and the reception took place during the first ever Irish Presidential visit to the United States.

The O’Kellys visited Washington, New York and Chicago during their ten day trip, and Mrs. O’Kelly’s wardrobe was designed by her niece, the fashion designer Neillí Mulcahy, who remodelled an early twentieth century Irish crochet lace gown to create this dress.

Beverly Bags, a well known Irish handbag manufacturer of the time, created an evening bag to match. The visit was deemed a huge success and was followed closely in both the Irish and American press.

It was part of the exhibition, "Neillí Mulcahy, Irish Haute Couture of the 50’s and 60’s" which was on display until 2011.

This website was launched over the weekend. It is a collaborative project by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and The Digital Repository of Ireland. 

Contributions to this project have come from National Library of Ireland, Chester Beatty Library, Abbey Theatre, Crawford Art Gallery, IMMA - Irish Museum of Modern Art, National Gallery of Ireland, The National Archives of Ireland and ourselves, National Museum of Ireland

It is a first step towards an ongoing national Inspiring Ireland programme to digitise and share our cultural heritage, to tell Irish stories and exhibit our unique Irish culture, now and for future generations. 

The quality of the collections in our Cultural Institutions, the trust and pride we place in these custodians of Irish identity, are what make this project so unique and beautiful.

Very pleasant and a fantastic free facility. Staff sitting in each exhibit room very old however and just sitting doing nothing except reading books. Exhibits are really impressive but the stories added alongside them could have been written by an 8-year old having been brainwashed with anti-English propaganda since birth. Overall a very nice museum but could do with some impartial fact-based supporting commentary and staff that aren't one stop from the graveyard.

This is becoming the most visited museum in my life. There's so much to see. The boy loves the military stuff, the girl loves the Japanese art. Only a 4 star as it's not the Natural History Museum or the Science Museum in London - which are impossible acts to follow.

Great place to visit for inspiration, especially the reconstructed rooms on the 2nd floor & Eileen Gray exhibition on top floor!

The visit is a great lesson on Irish History, with great exhibits, and the best part: it's free.

As far as I've seen this museum, don't know if there was more, it's the worst national museum I've ever been to. Only decorative art to see which is I think very boring.

Spent 1/2 a day here, uncountable objects each of which tell a story of the history of the country
