Glasnevin Goes Lego

Join school-student Erin as she tells her class about her exciting day at Glasnevin Cemetery Museum. Her tale will take you on a journey of discovery, through many parts of Ireland's largest cemetery and aspects of the lives of just some of the interesting people buried here. Be inspired to follow in her footsteps, take a tour and come away educated and inspired!

With the help of Erin begin to explore the fascinating origins of Glasnevin Cemetery and the lives of some of the women and men who shaped Irish History including;

  • Daniel O' Connell
  • Charles Stewart Parnell
  • Michael Collins
  • Countess Markievicz
  • James Larkin
  • Elizabeth O' Farrell
  • amon de Valera

Glasnevin Cemetery Museum and the talented team at animation workshop providers Createschool joined forces to produce the animation 'Discover - Ireland's History Carved in Stone'. With the help of local school students, who provided many of the voices, the characters sprang to life. 'Discover' was produced with the aim of allowing teachers and the public to gain an insight into the wonderful learning opportunities within Glasnevin Cemetery Museum. We hope it will be used to showcase the cemetery's varied and engaging history to students in an engaging and accessible manner.
