Irish Society for Archives

We exist to promote the place of archives in Irish society


The 2018 Spring edition of our newsletter is now available to view here.  This edition includes articles on the Ballybit Vessel in Carlow, Jim Herlihy’s new book on the Irish Revenue Police, the Erasmus Smith Schools Archive, the ISA Gate Theatre Seminar and ‘The Archivist and the Historian’ symposium.

The new edition of our journal, Irish Archives 2018, dedicated to the 90 year history of ESB was launched in November 2017. Copies are free to our members and can be purchased individually from our editors.

Journal launch




Please join us for a lecture by Helen Doyle on the archives of Feis Ceoil on Tuesday April 10th. This lecture will be followed by the Annual General Meeting of the ISA.
