A new heritage centre opens in the 150 year old courthouse at Bray in County Wicklow.

Bray courthouse has been fully restored at a cost of £200,000 and now houses a collection of paintings, pictures and museum pieces which retell the story of the north Wicklow town. 

Joe Horan, Bray Town Clerk, explains how the collection of Bray local history was put together. 

The exhibits are set out in sense of place. They relate to the people who have contributed to the history of Bray.

The design of the courthouse for use as an exhibition space was carried out by Orna Hanly.
