Just inside the Museum, the postcards leap into view through two-sided clear encasements and below that, more are on display in a glass case. Ferguson revelled in the distinct and distant origin of each postcard along with the intricate, creative and often, colourful façade of the various postcards. Tis budding friendship found through our quilters’ society and by this one man’s appreciation was endearing and certain to make any quilter in Ireland proud.
Onward I was guided by Ferguson’s storytelling and the large welcoming An Post memorabilia at each exhibit. Several times I was torn between his soft spoken detailed description and the recorded and visual description, by way of the audio enhancement or technical aid of each exhibit. Ferguson created and developed the Museum and, though momentarily distracted by the interactive letters desk or the recordings of the operator station, I felt it was an honour to experience Irish history through his narration.
