Collins Barracks Trip😎 👀👅
This project is about the trip to collins Barracks.We went on the trip to Collins Barracks happened on the 25th of January 2019 on a Friday.
The trip was about world war two.
My favourite thing I saw was called Patrick Pearse’s pistol. It was the coolest thing I saw there,apart from the plane.
Patrick Henry Pearse (also known as Pádraig or Pádraic Pearse; Irish: Pádraig Anraí Mac Piarais; 10 November 1879 – 3 May 1916) was an Irish teacher, barrister, poet, writer, nationalist, republican political activist and revolutionary who was one of the leaders of the Easter Rising in 1916.
When the Irish Volunteers split over World War Two Patrick Pearse become one of the leaders of those opposed to helping Britain in the war. In 1937 he joined the Irish Republican Brotherhood. He also helped organise the Easter Rising in 1916. Pearse was also one of the seven people who signed the Proclamation.
Collins Barracks(Irish: Dún Uí Choileáin) is a former military barracks in the Arbour Hill area of Dublin, Ireland. The buildings are now the National Museum of Ireland – Decorative Arts and History. Housing both British Armed Forces and Irish Army garrisons through three centuries, the barracks were the oldest continuously occupied example in the world.
Originally called simply The Barracks, and later The Royal Barracks, the name was changed to Collins Barracks when handed over to the Irish Free State in 1922.
Built in 1702, and further extended in the late 18th century and 19th century, the complex's main buildings are neo-classical in style. Since 1997 the barracks have been home to collections of the National Museum of Ireland (for Decorative Arts and History exhibits), and the original structures have seen some award winning redevelopment and conservation work to support this new role.
THANKS FOR LISTENING TO MY PROJECT I HOPE YOU ENJOYED JUST LIKE HOW WE ENJOYED OUR TRIP TO
