They have a bit of everything, but it's really interesting and well worth a visit if you're nearby! I especially loved the first room about the Easter rising.

Great little museum supporting and highlighting local social and policical history. Small space so an hour or hour and a half should be sufficient. Nice place to ramble alone with local info and artifacts from the locality.

Really informative and interesting little museum divided into sections for the political, sporting, educational and ordinary daily lives of the local people over the last +100 years. Lots of photographs, uniforms, regalia and artefacts. Helpful curator. Worth a visit.
