Army Barracks of Ireland

Our shared built military heritage: the online mapping, inventorying and recording of the army barracks of Ireland, 1690-1921

Digital Cultures is one of the research themes for the UCD College of Arts and Humanities Research Strategy for 2020-2024. The strategy brings together and supports the combined research excellence from across the College’s Schools, Institutes, Centres and subject disciplines.

As part of the Digital Cultures theme of the strategy, Dr Charles Ivar McGrath (UCD) and Dr Suzanne Forbes (Open University) gave a presentation entitled ‘Our shared built military heritage: the online mapping, inventorying and recording of the army barracks of Ireland, 1690-1921’. The presentation took place in January 2024 and focused on their work on the Army Barracks of Ireland: Our Shared Military Heritage, 1690-1921 project.

Thanks to support from the UCD College of Arts and Humanities Research Strand in Digital Cultures, a video of the talk, complete with slides, is available to watch. You can also podcast the talk below.
