~ 1916 Irish Collector ~
Exhibit located in the Columbine Room
Step back into the period of the 1916 Rising and be heartfelt touched and absolutely amazed by the collection of Conor Dullaghan which will be presented at the Rocky Mountain Irish Gathering. We are honored in his presence to bring to our guests this collection with their stories.
Conchúir O’Duilacháin moved to Southeast Ohio in 2011. He was born and raised in Ireland and studied Science with Business in Northern Ireland. He then moved to the US to pursue a graduate degree, and received his PhD in chemistry from Brown University in 1998. Since then he has held various roles in the precious metals arena. In his free time, Conchúir scours the internet for items to add to his private collection of mostly Irish militaria and ephemera. Through this activity, he has developed friendships in the US, Ireland, and elsewhere. He is most grateful for his family, and the “love of his life,” Stephanie, who is most patient with his collecting passion.
Conor recently did an interview with the Society of Irish Revolutionary History and Militaria (click link below):
