Trip to Cavan Museum on Friday 26th April 2019

A Peace IV funded trip to Co Cavan Museum, Ballyjamesduff took place last Friday 26th April 2019. The event was a walk through time, with routes that ultimately led to WW1 or to the GPO and the Rising. Both offered the shared themes of loss that inevitably accompanies conflict, and its impact, with a final reflective and contemplative space in the museum’s Peace Garden. The recreation of both those historic events allowed participants to rediscover our complicated history and our quest for independence, and provided a poignant reminder of what was lost by so many young Irishmen and the devastation caused to communities as a result due to the loss of so many young men. Thanks to everyone who came along on the day.
