Irish Society for Archives

We exist to promote the place of archives in Irish society




A call for articles for our Spring 2019 Newsletter has now been issued. We welcome articles relating to exhibitions, conferences, current research, developments in archive services, lectures, publications, and other matters of concern to those interested in Irish archives. Articles can be between 300 and 1,000 words, and since the newsletter thrives on images, please include photographs, preferably in hi-res jpeg format. Please send your articles to Vera Moynes.

The deadline for receipt of articles is 18 March 2019 and the newsletter will be published at the beginning of April.

Our Autumn newsletter is now available to view here. Articles include a tribute to Dr. Brian Trainor, the project to digitise acetate discs by the RTÉ Sound Archives, using GIS mapping with 1911 census returns, the Irish Jesuit archives and the Dublin City Hall lecture series.

The most recent edition of our journal, Irish Archives 2019, is dedicated to the 90 year history of the Gate Theatre, it was launched at City Hall in December 2018. Copies are free to our members, are available to buy from Easons and can be purchased individually from our editors.
