In 2010 Professor Diarmaid Ferriter (UCD School of History and Archives) gave a presentation on a selection of images from the Press Photographs of Éamon de Valera, a UCD Digital Library Collection*. The images of Éamon de Valera were digitised as part of the Irish Virtual Research Library and Archive (IVRLA**) digitisation project. Click here to view the full collection.
Éamon de Valera Papers
The collection of photographs form part of the very extensive de Valera Papers which are held in UCD Archives. Éamon de Valera bequeathed all of his personal non-family papers to the Order of Friars Minor five years before his death. The collection was housed in the Franciscan Library Killiney, County Dublin, before its transfer to UCD Archives in July 1997 under the terms of the OFM-UCD Partnership.
*This presentation formed part of the seminar ‘From Rising to Recession: Ireland’s First 100 Years and the UCD IVRLA‘, which was held at the UCD Humanities Institute.
**Note – the IVRLA now forms part of the UCD Digital Library.
