The museum informs and entertains

Welcome!
during this uncertain time, a time in which also many public places are closed  the museum will offer under #HoledupMuseum a series of posts on history, artifacts, information and we might not even rule out small videos.
So please join us and let us have fun during our self imposed social distancing.Today is St. Patricks Day. St Patrick was born in Roman Britain, in the 4th century. Taken to Ireland as a slave. He escaped and in 432 returned to Ireland to convert the Irish to Christianity. Many legends were woven around him, one that he drove all the snakes out of Ireland and that he used a shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity.
Irish immigrant brought St. Patricks Day to the USA were it was transformed largely into a secular holiday of revelry and celebration of all things Irish.There are too many great Irish writers to recommend. So we just pick one that you might not know – Elizabeth Bowen The Heat of the Day.
