Fashion Design National Gallery Visit

Fashion Design students visited the National Gallery in Dublin this week. Gemma O'Grady, a Fashion Design student ' We visited the National Museum of Ireland- Decorative Arts and History. It was such a vast space and free of charge! We focused on the costume side of things and visited the "The Way We Wore" floor. It consisted mainly of garments from the 1800's to early 1900's all worn and made in Ireland. There were many corsets which were typical of the time and it was evident how small people were back then.

Three units of the Fire Service parked up at the back of GTI where they had ample space to demonstrate their skills and knowledge. One engine had equipment to deal with situations such as car accidents and specialist tools for assisting with these emergencies. The fire service may be the first on the scene at road traffic accidents and must be ready to deal with these.
