Connecting past and present

As part of the ‘From Rising to Recession: Ireland’s First 100 Years and the Irish Virtual Research Library & Archive‘ event, which was held in the UCD Humanities Institute in 2010, Professor Mary Daly (UCD School of History and Archives) gave this lecture on some of the fascinating 1916 material digitised as part of the Irish Virtual Research Library and Archive (IVRLA)*.

University College Dublin holds a significant amount of 1916 ephemera and much of this material is now available to view via the UCD Digital Library in its Towards 2016 collection.

*Note – the IVRLA now forms part of the UCD Digital Library.
