We have selected 100 objects from our museum collections – Ballycastle, Ballymoney, Coleraine and Limavady – which reflect the history of the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough and our communities. This online Facebook exhibition will provide access to collections held in our stores and showcase objects that relate to the NI100 themes of sport, wellbeing and community development, food, drink and entertainment, heritage and culture and great Northern minds and innovation. Some examples include the graduation robes and cap of Constance Gertrude Trimble who obtained a BA from Trinity College Dublin in 1929, a Feis poster from 1940, Ballymoney and District Cycle Club tracksuit sweatshirt worn during the Commonwealth Games in 1990 and a flax breaker manufactured in the 1930s.
Throughout the rest of this year we will release at least one object a week. Keep up to date with the gallery below, or follow our Facebook pages:
