Hands-on History: 'Unconvertible Rebels'- The Women of Revolutionary Ireland

Free Admission

A Selection of the objects from the NMI Handling Collection
'But while Ireland is not free I remain a rebel, unconverted and unconvertible. There is no word strong enough for it. I am pledged as a rebel, an unconvertible rebel, because I am pledged to the one thing—a free and independent Republic...' - Constance Markievicz, 1922. 

Over the weekend, join Museum educators for Hands-on History: 'Unconvertible Rebels'- The Women of Revolutionary Ireland, an interactive handling session with objects from the Museum's handling collection that reflect a history of women's activism during the revolutionary era of 1913-1923.

This handling session will feature objects, such as bullets, pamphlets and badges, representing the many roles women filled during this turbulent period.

Also, join Museum tour guides for tours exploring the history of women through the NMI's collections. ​For more information, see here
