Virtual Record Treasury of Ireland live launch, 11.45am, 27 June 2022

Join us online for the launch of the Virtual Record Treasury of Ireland from Dublin Castle with the Taoiseach, Minister for Culture and Trinity Provost. Beyond 2022: Virtual Record Treasury of Ireland is an all-island and international collaborative research project working to re-create through virtual reality the Public Record Office of Ireland buildings and archival collections, which were destroyed in the opening engagement of the Civil War on 30 June 1922. This vast and free online resource will allow anyone interested in Ireland’s past to explore seven centuries of Irish history through tens of thousands of searchable replacement documents. It is a major legacy for the Decade of Centenaries, funded by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media under Project Ireland 2040.
