The Ancient Art of Hurley Making
GAA Museum at Croke Park, Co. Dublin – Dublin City
22 August, 4:30pm - 5:30pm
Take a tour of the Royal Irish Academy and learn about the dedicated collectors of past times.
These tours will walk you through the Georgian rooms of Academy House and its nineteenth-century Reading Room and Meeting Room. You will learn about some of the bibliophiles and scholars who spent their time collecting books and manuscripts, which are now part of the Library’s collections. Was it pure research, a Victorian pastime or a bibliophile’s obsession?
