Team - Over the last year I have been working on The GPO and Sackville Street as it was during the Rising.

I am pleased to announce that I have finished Sackville Street with Nelsons Pillar and am well and truly on the way to completing the GPO which I think will take another week or two. The display is 2.5m x 2m with over 600 soldiers and Irish patriots.

I swore D and Bfenz to Secrecy when I started this 14 months ago but now I need all of your help.

I think this can give us huge publicity over the next 12 weeks and I know that other members have completed models of Irish buildings, railway stations, custom house etc that are of an exceptional standard, can we get a 1916 display somewhere over Easter?

What's your thoughts?

Le meas,
