An EPIC Tale - David Cleary of EPIC talks with Ed Finn

The Sunday Show

Sunday, 7 April 2024 - 36 minutes

On this week's show we chatted to David Cleary, the Director of Sales and Operations at EPIC the Irish Emigration Museum.  "The name simply refers to the epic journey Irish emigrants have been on."  The museum is located in the CHQ building in Dublin. This was once the headquarters for shipping and storing tobacco in the 19th century. The EPIC Museum was the winner of Europe's Leading Tourist Attraction for three years running from 2019 to 2021.

The Exhibition David was chatting about - Unveiling 50 Years of Irish Legacy in Great Britain opens on April 11th

EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum is delighted to host this landmark exhibition that explores the personal stories, the struggles and the triumphs that have shaped the Irish community in Great Britain over the last 50 years.

The exhibition also features contributions from notable Irish cultural figures, actors Siobhán McSweeney, Adrian Dunbar and Aisling Bea, broadcaster Terry Christian, musician Jah Wobble and Moth Poetry Prize Winner Laurie Bolger, who has composed a bespoke poem.

The stories featured within the exhibition are as inspirational as they are heart-breaking, and most importantly, will never be forgotten. Volunteers from the Irish community in Britain received special training to help them capture at-risk testimonies from the last half century which speak of the sacrifice, joy, challenges, and crucial role the Irish have played in modern Britain.   Book Tickets
