The permanent exhibition is in the Seomra Mhic Dhonnchadha. Spread over 2 rooms, visitors will engage with personal family objects as well as a variety of material associated with the development of Ireland as a nation. Each family member is explored through their talents and interests along with their unique lasting legacies.
One gets a taste of Cloughjordan throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries as the MacDonagh family experienced the growth of the town. Cloughjordan at that time was vibrant with activity and at the heart of industrial developments arriving in Ireland in the late 19th Century. Using objects from our Folklife Collection the exhibition explores the everyday lives of townspeople.
