Building towards 2016 – Contract signed for GPO Flagship Project


Today the contract was signed for the construction works for the GPO: Witness History Interpretive Exhibition Centre. Construction will begin in November and is expected to take 12 months. GPO: Witness History will officially open on Easter Sunday 2016. The overall development will cost €7.8 million.

The GPO: Witness History Interpretive centre will form a centrepiece of the 1916 commemorations. Its Easter 2016 opening date is hugely significant historically but the centre will also be an enduring facility for the nation’s citizens to enjoy, and an impressive and informative visitor attraction that will help explain Ireland’s story to the rest of the world.
