Heritage Week 2021 – An Elephant Never Forgets

Heritage Week took place from 14th August – 22nd August. 

Our project this year was based on the well known phrase ‘An Elephant Never Forgets’ to run alongside our Wild Elephants of Dublin 8 exhibition.

We asked you to share your heritage stories and memories of past visits to Marsh’s Library.  First impressions, funny anecdotes, or if you were a reader, a curious discovery from the collections of books and manuscripts.  We got a few tales from members of staff too!

Many thanks to all of you who shared your stories.  Here are some of the memories:
