FUN AND GAMES:

Fun and Games focused on entertainment, leisure and sporting activities from years gone by, for both adults and children. As all social events included music, a fabulous collection of musical items was on display including the Killen family’s Mason and Hamlin Harmonium shipped out from Dublin 1877. Toys, games, records, musical instruments, sporting gear and much more. It’s time to celebrate.
