Call For Freedom: Ireland and South Africa
Nelson Mandela Gateway
(where you take the boat to Robben Island)
The exhibition is on the first floor of the Museum and will be running until 26 February 2019. It features etchings of the leaders and principal players from the 1916 Rising in Ireland and the links and commonality between the struggle for Irish Independence and that of South Africa.
The exhibition also emphasises the importance and impact Ireland had in influencing the Bill of Rights and changes to the South African Constitution. Celebration of the centenary of Nelson Mandela’s birth and 25 years of diplomatic relations between Ireland and South Africa are also marked in this series of pictures and banners.
Not to be missed!
