This former soldiers’ chapel now houses a unique collection of implements, artefacts and machines from all sectors of the printing industry in Ireland. Many of them are still in full working order.
Also on view are some ornate and highly efficient printing presses.
On the walls of the gallery is a collection of newspaper pages, demonstrating changing styles of presentation and recalling historic events. The gallery is also home to an array of early computers, used for photo-setting and responsible for the loss of so many unique hand skills.
The old military buildings surrounding the Museum create a unique historical backdrop for the exhibition. The barracks was the first to be handed over by the British to the new Irish State in February 1922. It was here also that one of Ireland’s famous revolutionaries, Erskine Childers was executed in 1922, during Ireland’s Civil War.
