Elephant On The Loose

The elephant dissected by Allan Mullen after it unfortunately burnt to death in a fire in Dublin in 1681 has become an iconic image for ESOF/Dublin City of Science 2012. Featuring in RTE nationwide and on the cover of an e-book by Ingenious Ireland, the unfortunate pachyderm has attracted great interest. Mullen’s article is on display in our exhibition, ‘Marvels of Science’: Books that Changed the World’. Don’t miss it!!
