James Connolly’s Green Flag of Ireland and the 1916 garrison flags

28 September, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

As part of the Easter 1916 commemorations the decision was made to conserve the surviving 1916 Dublin garrison flags for display in the National Museum. However during the course of the work a remarkable discovery came to light from Enniskillen. This presentation will outline the different types of flags used by the rebels in 1916 and the work that was undertaken to authenticate the Enniskillen flag together with the conservation process.

Rachel Phelan graduated from the Textile Conservation Centre in 1998. In 2002 she established her own studio and was accredited to the Institute pf Conservator Restores Ireland in 2005.
