GPO Witness Museum Visit  (10)

GPO Witness Museum Visit 

Today we were lucky enough to bring a group of 3rd year students to the GPO Witness Museum in the GPO, O’Connell Street. We were met by 'Tom' dressed in the uniform of the Irish Volunteers. Everyone got a headset and we were able to hear him properly as he showed us around the display about the Easter Rising which is underneath the building. There was lots of things to see and touch. There were a number of interactive games you could play and you could touch some of the pieces.  A film about the Rising was displayed on a huge screen with three projectors which recreated the events in Dublin 1916 and in GPO was excellent.
