Extract Town Hall Theatre Blog December 06. 2013An historic group photograph of delegates attending the Gaelic League national convention at Galway’s town Hall Theatre in 1913 will be presented to the venue at 3pm this Friday, 13 December by the members of the Curran family, Dublin who found the photograph in the attic of their family home.

The 100 year-old photograph, which will be on permanent display at the Town Hall theatre from tomorrow is tantamount to a who’s who of the “coming revolution” with as many as perhaps half the signatories of the 1916 proclamation (including Pádraig Pearse, Seán Mac Diarmada and Éamonn Ceannt) as well as three future Presidents of Ireland (Douglas Hyde, Seaá T O’Kelly and Eamon de Valera) being present.

The Galway Advertiser, Thu, Dec 05, 2013 published the photograph and most of the names of the 164 people in the photo.
