The Watchmen – Policing, Crime and Punishment in Monaghan at Monaghan County Museum.
Based on an exhibition that was produced by the National Museum of Country Life in Turlough Park, entitled Preserving the Peace – Policing on the island of Ireland 1814 – 2014. Monaghan County Museum has been working with the National Museum for over two years to develop this fascinating story. The original display in the National Museum explored the formation of policing on the island of Ireland and brought that story through to the police services we know today in An Garda Síochána and the Police Service of Northern Ireland. Monaghan County Museum then worked once again with Professor Terence Dooley of Maynooth University to develop a uniquely Monaghan story.
