Ireland: Dublin and Tralee

We have been working with the National Museum of Ireland in Dublin and Kerry County Museum in Tralee, which ran several projects with schools. Irish troops were strongly represented at Gallipoli throughout the Campaign, at a time when republican feelings were running high at home. Today, nearly 100 years after gaining independence from Britain, Ireland recognises the part that their soldiers played in the First World War, including the Gallipoli Campaign.

Craig Smith from Trinity Comprehensive School in Ballymun enjoyed the research using original sources: 'it's more like you're there, you're involved, it's a hands-on experience of what it was like'.

Students from Portmarkock Community School in Dublin used music to interpret the Gallipoli Campaign.
