You can sign-up now for a FREE 7 week workshop programme where you will:
--Find out about women and children held in the gaol, those sentenced to death and others transported to Tasmania between 1779 and 1850
--Visit museums and heritage sites, including the Linen Hall Library, Public Record Office of Northern Ireland, Down County Museum and Kilmainham Gaol in Dublin
--Turn your research into a creative output and make it available for future generations
Spaces for this programme are limited and requires participation throughout. All ages, genders and backgrounds welcome.
This programme is delivered in partnership with Carrickfergus & District Historical Society, Carrickfergus Museum and Carrickfergus Townscape Heritage Initiative.
