Visiting the Museum

We welcome you and your guests to the Eileen Hickey Museum where you will find treasured history, handcrafted artefacts created by prisoners while serving in Long Kesh and weapons used throughout 'The Troubles' within Belfast and the wider North. The museum encompasses and captures the Irish struggle across all the platforms that were present during the time and are timeless in the effect they have across generations.

Handcrafted Items

Many prisoners of the various prisons spent their time sculpting what are now timeless museum pieces housed within the Eileen Hickey Irish Republican History Museum. The hand carved wooden harp below is by Johnny Haddock to. Carved in the 1970's during Johnny's time in Long Kesh.

Stretching across the world...

The museum holds artefacts stretching thousands of miles and across many prisons across the globe. Notably artefacts have reached the Eileen Hickey Museum from prisons as far as the USA and as close as Armagh Womens Prison, 

...and many many prisons!

From memorabilia to remembrance pieces. The Republican Prisoners of War took it upon themselves to make and create history through the use of Art. Creating the gifts and pieces you see before you at the museum. Birthday, Christmas and everything in between!
