Letters, Lives & Liberty at the An Post Museum
Situated in a corner of Dublin's GPO, where the public telephone kiosks were once located, the An Post Museum housed the exhibition - Letters, Lives & Liberty – which explored the influence of the Post Office in Ireland and offered an insight into the role played by Post Office people in the development of Irish society over many years. From stamps and stamp collecting to An Post's copy of the 1916 Proclamation and the little known story of the staff who were actually in the GPO on Easter Monday, the exhibition was a unique way to learn about the importance of the Post Office in Irish life. The museum closed at the end of May 2015 but aspects of the displays may still be seen here in virtual from.
