The Personal and the Political, the Kilgannon Collection, and the Civil War in Sligo.

This exhibition uses photographs and archive material to consider the role of young women and men in the Civil War in Sligo.

Through the lens of Bea Kilgannon’s photograph album, and Tadhg Kilgannon’s famous photographs, we can see the journey from idealism to the harsh realities of the Civil War.
