Splendour and Scandal: The Office of Arms at Dublin Castle @ State Apartments Galleries

For 150 years, from 1831 until 1981, the Office Arms was located at Dublin Castle, and this exhibition aims to explore its peculiar yet fascinating history during that time. It will look at the glamourous world the Office superintended at the Viceregal Court; the theft of the Irish Crown Jewels; its role in Ireland, north and south, after 1922; and the re-emergence of the Office as a diplomatic tool of the State from 1943 to 1981.

The exhibition is curated by William Derham.
