Peace at Home?Dublin City Library and Archive until Thursday 31 January.  Opening hours are Monday-Thursday 10am-8pm & Friday-Saturday 10am-5pm.

Using the rich vein of archival materials contained in the Royal Dublin Fusiliers Association Archive held at DCLA, and drawing on other Irish repositories, the exhibition explores the situation facing the estimated 100,000 Irish men and women who returned to a radically changed Ireland after the First World War.

The story of the surviving soldiers and officers is told in original documents and artefacts, storyboards, audio-visuals and banners, bringing the survivors to life. Members of the public are encouraged to contact DCLA @dclareadingroom using #thepeaceathome if they have stories to tell of their own relatives during and after the First World War or want to enquire about anything in the exhibition.

Tours of the exhibition will be given by members of the Royal Dublin Fusiliers Association as follows:

  • Saturday 1 December:   Tom Burke
  • Saturday 8 December:   Capt Seamus Greene (retired)
  • Saturday 15 December: Brian Moroney

Tours run from 3.00-3.30 and admission is free of charge.
