Kilmainham Courthouse Theach Cúirte Chill Mhaighneann

Kilmainham Gaol
  • Start / Tús:
  • 30.03.16
  • Kilmainham Courthouse

There will be an official opening of the visitor amenities at Kilmainham Courthouse.

Beidh oscailt oifigiúil na gconláistí do chuairteoirí ag Teach Cúirte Chill Mhaighneann.

Between May 3-12, 1916, fourteen leaders of the Rising were executed by firing squad in what had been the Stone-breakers’ yard. Today the Gaol is open as a Visitor Centre and receives visitors from all over the world. Major works have been undertaken at the former Kilmainham Courthouse next door to the Gaol to adapt it for visitors. The building will be officially opened on Wednesday, March 30, 2016.

Idir an 3 agus an 12 Bealtaine 1916, chuir scuad lámhaigh ceithre dhuine dhéag de cheannairí an Éirí Amach chun báis i seanchlós na mBristeoirí Cloch. Inniu tá an Príosún oscailte mar Ionad do Chuairteoirí agus tagann cuairteoirí ann as gach cearn den domhan. Tá oibreacha móra déanta i sean-Teach Cúirte Chill Mhaighneann taobh leis an bpríosún lena chóiriú do chuairteoirí. Osclófar an foirgneamh go hoifigiúil Dé Céadaoin, an 30 Márta 2016.
