  • This weekend marks the centenary of the gun-running into Larne, Bangor and Donaghadee by the Ulster Volunteer Force, which was swiftly followed by the Howth gun-running in July 1914. The rifles and ammunition smuggled into Howth on board the yacht Asgard and into Kilcoole by Kelpie and Chotah would arm the Irish Volunteers in preparation for the 1916 Rising. Join Sandra Heise, curator of Historical Collections, for an illustrated talk describing these pivotal events in Irish history and their consequences. Please note that a special talk by Michael Kenny, Keeper Emeritus,entitled ’Understanding 1916’ follows at 12.40pm. Booking essential.
