This is a series of short films produced by the Education team at Collins Barracks focusing on artefacts that were previously on display in the Proclaiming a Republic – The 1916 Rising, at the National Museum of Ireland – Decorative Arts & History, Collins Barracks. To coincide with the closing of this exhibition, our Guides and members of our team were asked to select an object from the exhibition that resonated with them in some way, and give a short talk about the object.

Diarmuid Bolger, Museum Educator, talks about the ‘Bullet in the Brick’. On the 26th April 1916: Francis Sheehy Skeffington is killed at Portobello Barracks. Follow the link below to listen to this talk.

This talk is pre-recorded and can be viewed throughout the Festival
