Our Third level educational talks and presentation modules are aimed at all history or military cadet students studying World War Two history. This presentation module deals with Ireland on the home front during ‘The Emergency’ and the involvement of Irish people and organisations directly involved in World War 2 both in the European and Pacific theatres. This includes fascinating and virtually unknown stories of Irish involvement on the fringes of that conflict despite Irish neutrality.
The display and presentation deals initially with the affect of World War 2 at home in Ireland during ‘The Emergency’ as well as affect World War Two had across the border in Northern Ireland. This presentation then specialises in the D-Day Landings with particular emphasis on the airborne assault element of what is still the largest invasion in history.
The presentation module brings museum quality displays of period uniforms and equipment into the classroom including WW2 weapons (Fully deactivated and totally safe), WW2 parachutes, battlefield artifacts, publications, photos as well as archive footage from the period. The presentation also focuses on everyday inventions which arose out of World War 2 many of which might just surprise you. Detailed educational historical information is provided throughout the presentation to augment your existing history lecture programme and a question and answer session takes place at the end of the presentation.
Please note: Class sizes for each presentation must not exceed 80 students but we do facilitate additional presentations at your school or college on any given day in both the morning and afternoon. Contact us for further information.
