For Heritage Week Cork Public Museum hosted several events to celebrate Traveller Culture. We hosted a photographic exhibition of photographs of Travellers from the Mahon region in the 1980’s and recent photographs of the same area.

We made a mosaic sign on site. Travellers from the Cork Travellers Womens Network and visitors to the museum worked on making the mosaic in the museum for the week. This will eventually be hung near the entrance of the Traveller exhibition in the museum.
