RCSI opens its doors to public during Heritage Week

By Dermot - 25th Aug 2015 | 6 views

Over 350 people are expected to visit RCSI over the next three days as National Heritage Week 2015 has begun at the College.

This annual festival will see the College open its doors until Wednesday 26th August, for tours of the building, an RCSI Heritage Collections Exhibition and talk.

The tours will be run at 11am, 2pm and 6pm on each of the three days and are completely free of charge to the public but registration is essential.

The tours will be guided by Bryan Sheils (Front of House Manger, RCSI), Frank Donegan (Head Porter, RCSI) and Joseph Byrne (Deputy Head Porter, RCSI). Meadhbh Murphy the College’s Archivist will lead the Heritage Collections exhibition and talk.

The talk, entitled ‘Dublin in the Rare Ol’ Times’ will look at what life was like in Dublin in the decades leading up to the 1916 Easter Rising with a particular focus on the living, health, sanitation and hospital conditions during those years.

Guests will learn the history of the RCSI one of Dublin’s iconic buildings and how it came to be built. They will also find out about some of the individuals and events which have shaped, not just the College’s history, but the local and national history over the past 230 years, including when the College was seized by rebels of the 1916 Easter Rising led by Michael Mallin and Constance Markievicz.
