  • records managers

The aim of this site is to:
    1.    encourage awareness of the value of archives and
    2.    promote the use of archives

Using this website you hopefully can learn about the enormously diverse and exciting archival resources available in the archive services around the country, where to find them (Irish Archives Google Map) and how to use them. Many of the archive services have provided digitised examples of some of the most significant and popular collections which they hold.
