This exhibition tells the remarkable story of the Corr family, from Belfast’s Ormeau Road, in the period around 1916.

Using personal accounts and original sources and artefacts, it vividly describes the significant roles played by Elizabeth, Nell and Henry Corr (Cumann na mBan and Irish Volunteers) and George and Charles Corr (Australian and Canadian armies) in the seminal events of the time, including the Easter Rising, the Irish revolutionary period post-1916 and the First World War.

The Corr Family – Witnessing History Exhibition is supported by funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and will be in the Linen Hall Library from 5 April to 30 April 2016.
