'Bag' that Maritime Museum

22nd June 2011
'Bag' that Maritime Museum

A 'Bag-Packing Day'  in aid of the Maritime Museum in Dun Laoghaire is to start tomorrow, writes Jehan Ashmore.

The fund-raising activity will also run on the Friday and Saturday at the Tesco Bloomfield Shopping Centre off Lower Georges Street.

Volunteers are invited to assist in providing two hours of their time to help raise funds for the Maritime Museum which is currently closed due to ongoing renovation work.

For further information please call (01) 214 3964 or email: [email protected]

The museum is located in the former Mariners Church and is run by the Maritime Institute of Ireland (M.I.I.). The museum is to be officially reopened in March 2012, however they intend to be open to the public before their 70th anniversary in October 2011.

Information about the M.I.I. and the museum which welcomes new members can be found on www.mariner.ie

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.
