Donegal County Museum invites the public to bring in items that are associated with 1916 on Monday 18th May at 7pm in the Donegal County Museum, High Road, Letterkenny.


Staff will be on hand to assist with identification and photograph or scan items suitable for inclusion in our upcoming education pack and exhibition to commemorate the Centenary of 1916.


The 1916 Education Pack and Exhibition are part of Donegal County Council’s Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme.


Ireland 2016 is a year-long programme of activity, in which everyone is invited to participate, to commemorate the events of the 1916 Rising, to reflect on our achievements as a democratic state over the last 100 years and to look towards Ireland’s future.
