Welcome to Glasnevin Cemetery Museum

WW1 Centenary Exhibition

WW1 Centenary Exhibition

Exhibition in the Museum's Prospect Gallery

August 2014 - June 2015

'A Call to Arms'

In May 2014 Glasnevin Cemetery Museum appealed to members of the public to come forward with artefacts and heirlooms relating to Ireland's involvement in the First World War. The response was overwhelming and the range of objects and stories brought out into public for the first time gave a unique insight into the history of Ireland during that period.

In 1914 the men and women of Ireland answered a very different appeal. Conflict had begun on 28 July when Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia. A tangled web of European treaties and loyalties meant that the world's greatest economic powers were drawn into a war that would last four years and dramatically change the course of history.

Remembering the Irish who fought in World War 1, the exhibition features never before seen artefacts as well as incredible stories.

Topics include

  • We Will Remember Them
  • Acts of Gallantry
  • Women of WW1
  • The War in the Air
  • Gallipoli
  • Faces of the War
  • The War at Sea
  • Monuments to the Fallen
