To coincide with the 1916 Centenary Commemoration the Valuation Office is hosting an Exhibition entitled

"EASTER WEEK 1916 THE AFTERMATH" A Valuation Office Perspective.

 

The Valuation Office, which is the repository of a unique property archive, was established in 1830 as a Government Office of the Crown and is now among the oldest Offices of the Irish State still carrying out its original mandate.

In this exhibition, the Office seeks to portray its connection to the events of Easter Week 1916 in a number of interesting areas of activity. As a centre-piece, the Exhibition will showcase the rateable valuation records of the homesteads and places of abode of the signatories of the Proclamation.

Through a series of graphic display units, a specially selected number of items from the valuation archive gives the public an insight to these unique property records.

This exhibition which has been assembled by a multi-disciplinary Team recalls the events that took place in the Office in the aftermath of the Easter Rising when staff where required to account for their movements during that historic week of turmoil and rebellion and were required to swear allegiance to the Crown.

Admission to this exhibition is free and open to the public from Monday June 27th to Friday December 30th 2016 - Monday to Friday 10.00am -16.00pm
