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.
Renata Pekowska, Museum Guide, discusses the Proclamation. Easter Sunday, 23rd April 1916: An estimated 2,500 copies of the Proclamation were printed by the insurgents in Liberty Hall in Dublin. Easter Monday, 24th April 1916: Patrick Pearse read the Proclamation outside the General Post Office (GPO) on Sackville Street (today O’Connell Street) and supporters of the Rising distributed copies of the Proclamation around the city.
This talk is pre-recorded and can be viewed throughout the festival –
