A History of Ireland in 10 Words (Royal Irish Academy) 

1st October – 27th November 2020 • Vertical Gallery – Linen Hall Library

The Royal Irish Academy has created a pop-up exhibition based on the book A history of Ireland in 100 words to inspire fresh interest in the Irish language by revealing connections between words we still use and words used in a bygone era. 

This exhibition accompanies the book A history of Ireland in 100 words by Sharon Arbuthnot, Máire Ní Mhaonaigh and Gregory Toner. The exhibition was curated by the authors and Ruth Hegarty. Joe McLaren created the illustrations for the book and the exhibition, both of which were designed by Fidelma Slattery and edited by Helena King.
