Our Irish Women
Moycullen Heritage and ICA Guild take part in National Exhibition
Moycullen Heritage, partnering with our local ICA guild, are very proud to be contributors to The Our Irish Women exhibition now showing at the Courtyard Gallery @ the National Museum of Ireland – Country Life, Castlebar, as well as on the community archive websites.
our community on a national platform
This is the first network-wide project undertaken by members of the Irish Community Archive Network (iCAN) and it commemorates the 100-year anniversary of the Representation of the People Act (1918), which extended a limited form of suffrage to women in Ireland for the first time.
Early in 2018, it was decided that each group would research a woman (or women) that had in some way contributed to their community, county or country. These (mostly unknown) stories would then be exhibited in the Courtyard Gallery @ the National Museum of Ireland – Country Life, running from 2 October 2018 through to 25 November 2018, after which, the exhibition will travel to each community in the Network.
