"What this exhibition achieves so well is that it doesn’t just focus on the facts of Ireland’s relationship with the EU."
"It also illustrates our emotional and cultural connection, and it makes the strong case for the EU anchoring for our place in the world and our sense of who we are today."
"Across the 12 panels you can see this clearly – from a woman holding freshly printed euro notes, to John Hume speaking with Gay Byrne on the Late Late Show, to images from agriculture and fishing."
"The exhibition gives us a real flavour of how the EU has integrated into our day to day lives and livelihoods."
"This makes it a living exhibition, one that captures both the complexity and the diversity of Ireland’s membership of the European Union.”
