An exhibition on the scientific heritage of Dublin, based on the Dublin chapter of Mary’s book Ingenious Ireland, was launched at the Little Museum of Dublin on St Stephen’s Green on the 18th October.

Entitled ‘Ingenious Dublin’, the exhibition was conceived by Fiona Doris and designed by Nigel Monaghan, in collaboration with the Little Museum of Dublin, and will run until the 5th January.

The exhibition  features a selection of scientific curiosities from Dublin’s past and includes an instrument called a coelostat, on loan from the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies’ Dunsink Observatory that was made in Dublin and was used to confirm Einstein’s General Theory of relativity in 1919.

Here is an Irish Times article about the exhibition.
