Visit from the Hungarian Ambassador

24 November 2018

Once again we were delighted to have a diplomatic visitor to Carlow County Museum. Back in September we welcomed the Ambassador of Belgium to Ireland and today we were honored with a visit from His Excellency István Pálffy, the Hungarian Ambassador to Ireland, as part of his visit to Carlow with Carlow County Council and the LEO office. He visited the county buildings, the Visual, Carlow College and Carlow County Museum.

Our curator Dermot Mulligan brought the ambassador around the highlights of Carlow County Museum, where he learned about some famous Carlow men including John Tyndall, William Dargan, and Kevin Barry.

The ambassador was particularly interested in our Archaeology exhibition, which explores various artifacts uncovered across multiple sites in county Carlow during the excavation of the M9 Bypass including stone axes, flint arrowheads and a medieval brooch.
