From September 2020 students from DEIS schools will be able to avail of free tours of Glasnevin Cemetery.
This initiative has been made possible via support from the Dormant Accounts Fund. Glasnevin Trust CEO, Aoife Watters remarked the following -"We at Glasnevin Trust are delighted to have been awarded this grant under the Dormant Accounts Fund. The funding ensures that a wider cohort of school students will benefit from the unique learning opportunities that exist within Glasnevin Cemetery Museum and will engage with a variety of historical events and figures which are central to The Decade of Centenaries. The cemetery is a site steeped in history and students participate in educational programmes to further their knowledge and awareness of Irish history. They are enabled to view events from the past through multiple viewpoints, encouraging skill development and supporting the teaching and learning of history."
