Irish Famine Exhibition The Irish Potato Famine was the most catastrophic event in Ireland’s turbulent history. It is also regarded as being one of the worst Famines in history (deaths as a proportion to population). The use of the word ‘Famine’ in this context is controversial, for Ireland at the time was part of the richest Empire in the World (the British Empire). There was sufficient food in the country throughout the ‘Famine’ years, yet over a million people died from starvation and disease, and millions more were forced to flee. Some historians prefer to use the name ‘Great Hunger’ to describe this period of mass death from starvation and disease. This exhibition tells the story of what happened during those horrific years. We use rare 19th century photographs, witness accounts, contemporary sketches as well as maps and statistical information. A 15 minute film with seating is included in the exhibition and the average time spent by visitors is 1 hour. A DVD of the exhibition can also be purchased at the venue. This exhibition is dedicated to all victims of the Irish Potato Famine or The Great Hunger. Please go to Irish Famine Museum for more information

While the term Pride didn’t become popular until the early 1980’s, the tradition, established following the Stonewall Uprising, of holding LGBTQ+ events and protests at the end of June was adopted very early by Dublin. In the early 1970’s this was often marked by a picnic in Merrion Square and on June 27th 1974 there was even a march of 10 people from the Department of Justice on Stephen’s Green to the British Embassy to protest the criminalisation of homosexuality, the law was a hangover from colonial times. In March 1983 the first large scale LGBTQ+ protest march took place in Dublin. It was organised by the Dublin Lesbian & Gay Collective in response to the release of the murderers of a gay man called Declan Flynn. About 900 people marched from Liberty Hall to Fairview Park. That June the National LGBT Federation (NXF) organised the first Dublin Pride Parade, it went from Stephen’s Green to the GPO. While the original route went from St Stephens Green to the GPO on O’Connell Street, in the early 1990’s the starting point of The Garden of Remembrance was established. Dublin LGBTQ Pride Today In 2018 60,000 people marched with us and as […]
