Our exhibition and museum in the GPO will, sadly, be closing at the end of next month to make way for ongoing work on the new 1916 museum, GPO Witness History. Since we opened our postal museum getting on for five years ago we have had the pleasure of welcoming many thousands of visitors to Dublin’s GPO and introducing them to the history and continuing role of the Post Office in Ireland. Young and old, native “Dubs” and visitors from around the world, stamp collectors, historians, and the perennially curious have, I believe, come away from the GPO with an increased appreciation for a wonderfully historic building and an organisation which has been at the heart of Ireland’s history for so many generations. It has been fun for those of us involved with the Museum here to have met so many interesting people and to have had an opportunity to share our enthusiasm for the Post Office and its wider role in Irish life and we hope to continue to do this through other channels and on other occasions.
