Revolutionary Routes: Ireland & the Black Atlantic


Ireland’s diaspora history is more diverse than you may think.

 

EPIC is proud to present an exhibition exploring stories of departure, arrival and return, tracing histories from the Age of Revolutions (1790s) to the present day, encapsulating Irish diaspora histories of abolition, racism, anti-racism and solidarity. The exhibition is running until October 30th at EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum.

EXPLORE THE MUSEUM

You won’t find leprechauns or pots of gold here, but you will discover that what it means to be Irish expands far beyond the borders of Ireland through the stories of Irish emigrants who became scientists, politicians, poets, artists and even outlaws all over the world. Discover Ireland from the outside in and find out why saying “I’m Irish” is one of the biggest conversation starters, no matter where you are.
