‘DOING THEIR BIT’: Irish Women and the First World War
1 September - 29 October
Drawing on the Royal Dublin Fusiliers Association Archive and other materials held at Dublin City Library and Archive, this exhibition explores different aspects of womens’ experiences during the First World War. With stories of munitions factory workers, nurses, separation women and those involved in the anti-conscription movement, the exhibition shows how war-time experiences accelerated changes which had been slowly taking place in Irish society before the outbreak of war. Free guided tours available.
