This Is Not Us
We’re challenging the negative stereotypes attached to Ireland and the Irish people.
We uncovered predictive search data which shows that many incorrect and misleading perceptions of the Irish still prevail globally – the most common of which link the Irish to fighting, drinking, potatoes and holding grudges.
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.
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.
