Ireland was officially divided into two separate political areas under the Government of Ireland Act on 23 December 1920. This was a pivotal moment in a long process that saw the idea of partition move closer to reality. Over one hundred years ago, events at home and internationally brought about monumental changes to the political and social structures to Ireland.
This exhibition examines the origins, impact and legacy of partition through key artefacts and documentation.
