Despite emigrating 3 months ago due to the Irish fiasco I still can not help but regularly read this website. Have been in Mexico City recently enjoying the anthropology museum. Made me wonder...
Why does Ireland not have a museum of Gaelic culture and civilisation that covers the history, language, development etc of the society from whenever the Gaelic invasion was through the different stages to the eventual collapse in 1601 to 1607 and then the history of the lingering decline since then. It could go through the celtic gods, mythology, place names, social structures, brethons etc. Local areas and the lingering prominence of certain names i.e. MacCarthy in Cork etc. Music, poetry and literature would of course be a major aspect
Most museums at the moment are a majority Anglo Irish approach that do not explain much of the indigenous culture pre English conquest.
I reckon it would be a great success and appeal to locals and holiday makers especially those tracing Irish roots. Germans of course would love it.
Shoot me down and tell me to go play some rugby.
