Brush up on Irish history at the General Post Office in Dublin

Hosted by Anna McHugh and Aline FitzGerald

Join us as we travel to Ireland’s charming capital city of Dublin for a special visit to the nation’s postal office, or An Post, as it is known in Gaelic. Here, we meet Anna McHugh, Head of Communications, who shares the historical and contemporary significance of the General Post Office (GPO) building, which was the scene of the 1916 Easter Rising and the birthplace of the Irish nation. Delve into this building’s history during a tour of the GPO Museum with General Manager Aline FitzGerald and Visitor Experience Ambassador Gregory Walls. They also share how the museum strives to preserve the stories of everyday people who lived during this revolutionary time in Irish history.
