Dawn of a Nation

When The Dawn is Come, an exhibition presented by Solstice and Meath County Council Library Service as part of Meath County Council's Centenary Programme 2016, opens this Thursday at 7.30pm in the Solstice Arts Centre, Railway St, Navan beside the Library .  The exhibition will be launched by writer Carlo Gebler.
  The exhibition includes marching banners of a Meath branch of the Irish National Volunteers. the  Navan branch of Irish National Foresters, the Navan branch of the Gaelic League, photographs of Meath Volunteers, official council minutes, and artefacts from Oldcastle Civilian Internment Camp ( 1914-1918 ).  This is the first time these artefacts have been shown together and they provide an insight into the revolutionary period in the County. The exhibition runs until 4th June.
