Decade of Centenaries

Yesterday I popped in to Belfast City Hall to check out the new Decade of Centenaries exhibition.

The exhibition focuses on key events that took place in the period between 1912 and 1914.

There is a great section about the City in the early 1900’s and how people lived, and a lot of interesting facts from this period of great change in Ireland.

It focuses on a range of events, including the campaigns for and against Home Rule, the signing of the Ulster Covenant, the growth of the volunteer armies, gun running, the suffrage movement and the Gaelic revival.

It is the first in a series of three exhibitions which will be staged as part of Belfast City Council’s ‘Decade of Centenaries’ programme for the years 1912 – 1922.

I would encourage everyone to see what I think is the best exhibition I’ve seen in the City Hall, and learn more about our history.

The exhibition will be on display in the East foyer of the City Hall until the end of February 2013.
