"They Dreamed and Are Dead" examines Limerick in 1916, from its deeply nationalist roots to its role as an industrial city. This is a year-long snapshot of a conflicted and complex city; a city where every man was either fighting in the trenches of the Somme and Salonika, or in the streets of Dublin city.
This exhibition looks at life in 1916 in Limerick- its fashion, its education system, its favourite pasttimes, its housing system, its businesses- as well as the rise of nationalism, Cumann na mBan, the Irish League, the GAA, the Volunteers.
