The Tower Museum will host a bilingual exhibition entitled ‘Athbheochan na Gaeilge agus Éirí Amach na Cásca’ (The Irish Language Revival and the Easter Rising) from Monday 1st to Friday 5th February 2016.

The exhibition, which was developed by Conradh na Gaeilge (The Gaelic League), details the history of the Irish language from its decline following the devastating impact of the Great Famine to its subsequent revival in the late 19th century, reflecting in particular on the role of the Irish language within the ideals of the revolutionary generation in 1916. 

The exhibition also charts in detail the events leading up to the Easter Rising, exploring the stories of some of the key figures associated with 1916, both male and female.

The exhibition is part of the DCSDC Museum Service programme in partnership with the Council’s Irish Language Services programme.
