Irish Rebel - Canadian Patriot
Located on the seafront in Carlingford, this exhibition is the first permanent exhibition, either in Ireland or Canada, devoted to the life and politics of Thomas D’Arcy McGee.It tells, using a variety of media and a range of rare artifacts, of his transformation from Irish rebel to founding father of the Canadian Confederation. The artifacts include a rare wanted poster, one of only three casts of his hand and Jeremiah O’Donovan Rossa’a pipe, which was once owned by Thomas Clarke, the first signatory of the Proclamation of the Irish Republic. Here is an online 3D gallery of three of the items in the exhibition. In 2020 the exhibition will be travelling around certain towns and cities in Ireland.
