Friday 16th September onwards:
'The Illusion of Consensus' - Photographs of Limerick in 1916
Removed for the Dublin-centred action of the Rising itself, Limerick came to national prominence largely in its aftermath. Bishop O'Dwyer, granted the freedom of the city in September 1916 due to his unbowed response to Sir John Maxwell condemning the executions, had founded Mary Immaculate College in 1898. In 1916 MIC was the only third level institution in the city and will be a key feature of th exhibition. The city itself, in a time of transition and chaos, went on. The exhibition will focus on the multiplicity of life in Limerick in this exceptional year.
