On Wednesday 11th July, CHQ gave a Royal Welcome to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, where they paid a visit to EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum, Dogpatch Labs & CoderDojo.
CHQ was honoured to host the couple as part of their official visit to Dublin, as they were presented with native Irish flowers by seven year old Maria Dempsey from Laois, then led to EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum by founder and chairman of EPIC, Neville Isdell, and Deputy Museum Director, Jessica Traynor.
The visit to EPIC aimed to give the royal couple a deeper understanding of Ireland through the lens of emigration across the arts, sciences, sports and culture. The couple got to uncover stories from the celebrated to the unsung and how Irish emigrants shaped the world, with the focus on what they brought with them, not what they left behind. Their Royal Highnesses walked through the state-of-the-art interactive galleries, complete with touch screens, motion sensor quizzes and a feast of powerful audio and video that bring to life what it means to be Irish.
