The temporary exhibition, Kitchen Power, was formally opened by Mrs Mary Robinson in the National Museum of Country Life. Developed in collaboration with Dr Sorcha O'Brien of Kingston University and Noel Campbell, Curator at the National Museum, it interprets the story of the impact of electricity on the lives of women in 1960s rural Ireland.
The design is based on the 1960s promise of the "better, happier and healther life," as depicted in the advertising and trade exhibitions of that time. It is also influenced by it's location within the Museum, following on from the permanent galleries that depicts the 1850s post famine folklife era which drew to a close with the advent of electricity.
A beautiful new permanent exhibition space celebrating the life of Venerable Nano and the history of the Presentation Congregation has recently been completed at Mount St Anne's Retreat and Conference Centre in Ireland.
We were delighted to attend the official launch of Explore Our Boyne Valley yesterday in Drogheda
