An exhibition at a museum in the Irish capital has been opened to commemorate Irish history as both parts of the island of Ireland begin preparing to mark a decade of centenaries.

Titled Revolutionary States: Home Rule and Modern Ireland, the display is running at the Hugh Lane Gallery in Dublin and is running until 21 October, with entry free to all visitors.

Some of the exhibits on display include works by well-known artists Sir John Lavery, Sean Keating, Jack Butler Yeats and Sir William Orpen. There are also portraits of well-known Irish figures from a hundred years ago, with a strong focus on those who made their mark on both nations’ history.

A deep knowledge of Irish history is not needed to enjoy the exhibition, which sheds light on a dramatic period of history. Come and check it out whilst taking a break in one of the excellent Dublin hotels over the coming weeks.
