Mercy treasure on exhibition in Australia's National Museum (MIA)

A new exhibition at the Australian National Museum opened on St Patrick's Day this past week to tell one of the nation’s great home grown stories - the experience of the Irish people in Australia. One of the 450 objects on display in this exhibition is a Mercy treasure of an emu egg clock...

This clock, which has been on display in the Heritage Room of Mercy International Centre, attracted the attention of curators of the National Museum of Australia who requested permission to exhibit it in an exhibition entitled “Not Just Ned: A True History of the Irish in Australia.” The exhibition features 450 objects that tell the story of the Irish presence in Australia, from the very early days of convict settlement through two centuries of engagement in Australian society.
