Journey to Wales: Dublin to Fron-goch

archives 2016 fron goch whisky

Following the Easter Rising in Dublin in 1916, the British government rounded up more than 1,800 Irish dissidents and imprisoned them at a former whisky distillery at Fron-goch, North Wales.

To commemorate this important yet little-known moment in Welsh history, a virtual story book has been created in partnership by the Holyhead Maritime Museum, Gwynedd Archive Service and Anglesey Archives.

This exhibition charts the fascinating journey taken by the Irish rebels as they travelled from Dublin to Holyhead and across Anglesey to their final destination at Fron-goch.
