A historic weekend ahead, I'm really looking forward to attending the 1916 Rising events in Dublin this weekend. Yesterday I went to "Proclaiming a Republic" the new exhibition at the National Museum, it was jam packed full of people, so nice to see Irish people taking an interest in their own history. Last month I was lucky enough to lead two walking tours to 1916 battlegrounds as part of the Trauma exhibition with Science Gallery Dublin. It was a great experience, I enjoyed learning about what happened on the streets I'm so familiar with and sharing that with others. Thanks to the Science Gallery for the great opportunity and to all that attended the tours despite the appalling (patriotic) weather!! Here's a photo of me with the last tour, what a great bunch of people!
