Galway County Council Archives launched its bi-lingual travelling exhibition From the Archives, 1916: Revolution and Recollection exhibition, at Cill Rónáin Library on Inis Mór on Friday 15th January. A Cathaoirleach Cllr. Peter Roche, launched the exhibition to a capacity crowd, which also included pupils and teachers from Scoil Ronain National School.
Prior to the launch a Cathaoirleach and staff from Galway County Libraries and Archives visited the school. The children were enthusiastic recipients of gifts of archive badges and pencils. The pupils then proudly displayed a 1916 signatories project they and their teachers had just completed.

It has recently come to our intention that the Digital Repository of Ireland believe that digital heritage is at risk of destruction and loss if action is not taken for the preservation of Irelands Archives. Digital decay is the gradual decay of digital content - lost data that cannot be accessed because computers no longer understand the legacy formats. The solution is digital preservation in lay mans terms this includes active ongoing data management, including changing formats, standards, and software.
