We were delighted to partner with both Trinity College Dublin and RTE for a World War One Roadshow, which took place at Trinity College Dublin on Saturday, 12th July 2014. There was a day-long programme of great free events throughout the Trinity campus all relating to World War One. It included pop up talks, WW1 cooking demonstrations, music, theatre, lectures and family activities.
Members of the public were also invited to bring along items relating to World War One to be catalogued for an online European archive. We were delighted that so many people registered to attend this element of the day. We were really touched by the personal stories that people shared with us and the many photographs, letters, postcards, medals, keepsakes, army discharge papers, coins, maps, diaries, army recruitment posters and other WWI memorabilia that people brought with them.
