Where: In Person at Richmond Barracks

Join Dublin’s Historian-in-Residence for Children Dervilia Roche for this free, interactive workshop for children at Richmond Barracks.

Step back in time as we trace Inchicore and Kilmainham’s development from Viking burials to the city suburbs we know today. Use maps and other tools to chart the changing face of Inchicore throughout the centuries and learn about the people who have called the area home at different points throughout history.

If you have any questions or are curious to know more, please get in touch with us via cultureconnects@dublincitycouncilculturecompany.ie or on 01 524 0391.


For your own safety and that of our staff and other visitors, all visitors attending indoor events and activities at Richmond Barracks will be required to bring proof of Covid-19 vaccination or immunity, and matching photo ID on arrival at the building. Visitors must also wear a face mask for the duration of their visit. Further info on accepted forms of proof of immunity can be found here: https://bit.ly/3iDJc10.
