Kerry Teams Homecoming

Over 20,000 supporters gathered in front of the museum on Denny Street on Monday night, 22nd September to welcome home the victorious Kerry minor and senior All-Ireland winning teams. Young and old alike assembled to catch a glimpse of their heroes and the coveted Sam Maguire and Tom Markham cups. It was the first time since 2009 that the senior team had won an All-Ireland title and over 20 years since the double had been achieved!

Here are some photos from the night:

Culture Night – A huge success

On Friday 19th September we had one of our most successful Culture Nights. With over 320 people streaming through our doors, young and old were treated to some wonderful traditional Irish music by the Sliabh Mish Comhaltas Group. All our galleries were open on the night and the Bone Investigators proved as popular as ever with our young visitors. The talented ladies from Ciar Quilters were on hand to showcase some of their fine craft and Helen O’Carroll and Sarah O’Farrell gave a wonderful insight into the behind the scenes workings of our museum with fantastic guided tours.

Here are just some of the photos from the night.
