#Exhibition – On this first day of Spring marks the launch of The Dublin Dock Workers Preservation Society's free exhibition hosted at EPIC, The Irish Emigration Museum located in the chq, Custom House Quay.

The society is dedicated to preserving the rich history and heritage of Dublin Docklands, to honour those who worked in capital's docks and of the surrounding dockland industries.

The exhibition (which runs to Monday 27 March) is a journey through the Docklands. So explore the original port of Dublin and learn about this fascinating part of the city, its people, history and industry with EPIC.

Free Lecture 

As part of St. Patrick's weekend (on Saturday 18 March), the Dublin Dock Workers Preservation Society will also host a special series of free talks at EPIC in The chq building’s Galleria.

The lectures take place between 3.00pm-5.00pm where guest speakers are Joe Mooney and Ann Matthews. Both lectures should provide an eye-opening and insightful account of the rich social history of Dublin’s docklands that has been slowly disappearing in recent years.

Tickets are free but limited to 100 guests. Click here to book via Eventbrite.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
