Dividing Ireland – The Origins, Impact and Legacy of Partition
July 5 @ 9:30 am - August 20 @ 4:30 pm
The Burnavon Theatre is hosting a temporary exhibition, ‘Dividing Ireland – The Origins, Impact and Legacy of Partition’.
The exhibition is on loan from the Derry City & Strabane District Council Museums Collections, and comes from a successful exhibit at the city’s Tower Museum. It will be open to the public for free from July 5 to August 20 inclusive.
Events at home and around Europe from 1912 to 1922 oversaw monumental changes to the political and social structures of the island of Ireland. The exhibition explores some of those events through objects and documents in the Tower Museum’s collection.
Topics will range from Partition and the work of the Boundary Commission creating the border between north and south, to the War of Independence and the Irish Civil War – all of which had a significant impact on life in the North West.
- August 5 - August 7
