Experience a classroom from bygone years at Athlone Castle


Athlone Castle is delighted to announce, in collaboration with Derryglad Folk Museum, a temporary exhibition as part of the Castle’s outreach programme.


The focal point of the installation is a classroom display from bygone times. The display will feature a blackboard, a teacher’s desk and student’s desk. On display will be images of classrooms from the past and information that will reference how the story of Athlone Castle relates to the classroom display.”


Fiona Moore, Cultural Assistant at Athlone Castle, who curated and installed the display said: “I hope that school students and the public come and visit the exhibition and experience the class room from earliest parts of the twentieth century.”


The exhibition is free to the public and will run from the Friday 9th February until the Wednesday 28th February inclusive. Queries and requests for further information should be addressed to Athlone Castle on 0906442130 or info@athlonecastle.ie
