    St. Patrick’s Ireland: A Living History

    Meet an early mediaeval monk, an Irish warrior, a barber surgeon and the many other people of St. Patrick’s Ireland as they talk about life in Early Mediaeval Ireland.

    Drop-in to the Palatine Room at the National Museum of Ireland, Collins Barracks  and join Tóla Collier and others from the re-enactment group, Laoch Living History, to meet the people of St. Patrick’s Ireland.

    Meet six characters in total including an abbot, a scripture monk, a herbalist, a barber surgeon and a warrior as they use replicas to demonstrate the clothing and tools that the people of Ireland were making and using in Early Mediaeval Ireland at the time of St. Patrick’s arrival.

    Within this space, you can also watch videos about the artefacts and monuments of Glendalough on a silent loop with subtitles. Additionally, there will be a timeline relating to the valley of Glendalough and activity sheets for families to take away.
