The Joseph MacDonagh Centenary Exhibition comprises a specially curated collection of new acquisitions and objects from our existing collection. The collection brings together deeply personal objects that showcase Joseph MacDonagh’s influence in the Irish revolutionary movement. Joe maintained close family bonds with his siblings while becoming a formidable player in the world of Irish politics. Pronounced ‘the greatest young Irishman of his day’ Joseph died while imprisoned on 25 December 1922.
