Marcon to carry out major fit-out at the Museum of Literature Ireland
29 Aug 2019 . BY Lauren Heath-Jones....
Marcon's heritage team will be responsible for the manufacture and installation of specialist joinery, display cases, bespoke metalwork, graphics and feature lighting throughout the museum
Marcon, a fit-out specialist based in Northern Ireland, is set to complete a major fit-out at the UCD Newman House in Dublin that will transform the building into the Museum of Literature Ireland (MOLI).

The €10.5m project will unite University College Dublin (UCD) and the National Library of Ireland to create the MOLI. Billed as a new literary attraction with international appeal, MOLI will have a focus on 20th and 21st century writers with a particular emphasis on James Joyce.

It will, said a release, present a rich panorama of Irish literature with a first edition of Joyce's Ulysses, serving as a spectacular focal point. Other literary greats, such as Newman, Hopkins, Beckett, Donoghue, Tóibín and Meehan, will also be honoured in the museum.

Marcon's heritage team will be responsible for the manufacture and installation of specialist joinery, display cases, bespoke metalwork, graphics and feature lighting throughout the space, and will work closely with museum and exhibition designer Ralph Appelbaum Associates.

Martin McErlean, heritage contracts manager at Marcon, said: "We are really pleased to be carrying out the exhibition fit-out within the new Museum of Literature Ireland. This is a wonderful project to be involved in and the international appeal of the museum will allow us to showcase our craftsmanship to the world."

Mirko Cerami, architect & exhibition designer at Ralph Appelbaum Associates, said: "Ireland has an incredibly vibrant and creative literary tradition, encompassing everyone from literary giants such as James Joyce through to young, up-and-coming new writers and poets."

"We are honoured to be given the change to share this tradition with the world, inside the historic Newman House, a home to teachers, writers, poets and playwrights for over 100 years."

"RAA's exhibition design takes visitors on an immersive journey through the words, language and sounds of this vast tradition, from the streets of Joyce's Dublin to the contemporary slang of writers today. We hope that MoLI will inspire a new generation to not only connect with Irish literature's glorious past but also to go out, write and contribute to its vibrant future."
