dlr Libraries were approached by Aisling Collins Archaeology Services in relation to a collection of artefacts discovered during excavation works on Dove House in Blackrock, Co. Dublin.
They wish to donate some of the pieces to DLRCC for permanent exhibit. Some of the artefacts date to the 18th Century and give an insight into Blackrock society at the time. A photographic exhibition of the pieces will be prepared, items catalogued and curated for display initially in dlr LexIcon (Dún Laoghaire) in early 2023.
The exhibition will be complemented by a programme of workshops for local schools and community groups, which will include video resources and printed materials.
