  • Dodo remains in the National Museum of Ireland - Natural History, Dublin
    Monaghan, N. T.
    Journal of Natural Science Collections, Volume 10, pages 45 - 59

    Dodo remains in some museums are not well known or publicised. The fossil bones in the National Museum of Ireland are described and their provenance discussed. Dodo remains in Trinity College Dublin and those exhibited at a scientific meeting in Dublin in 1866 are also reviewed. The Dublin skeleton is a composite, mostly acquired by the Royal Dublin Society at auction in London in 1866, and mounted by Edward Gerrard junior in 1871.
