TY Visit to Cathal Brugha Barracks.

on Monady May 23 the TY History group concluded their 1916 studies with a visit to Cathal Brugha Barracks in Rathmines.  Our guide, Noel McDonnell, gave a wonderful presentation in the visitor centre where there are some very interesting artefacts from the period.  The lads were fascinated to see the original death mask of Michael Collins and to hear some of the hidden history of the Rising.  Many thanks to Brian and Úna from the 1916 Four Courts Relatives Association for organising the tour for us.20160523_111637[1]20160523_105335[1]20160523_104604[1]
