Welcome

This is the home of the blog for the Hurdy Gurdy cataloguers… here we will share our progress and chart our journey as we catalogue the collection held within Martello Tower #2 at Howth, Co. Dublin.

The museum houses a collection of all manner of artefacts relating to the history of communication and of Ireland.
