Dublin in the Archives: Digital Collections Exploring the City and County

Online

Digital archives are bursting with collections relating to Dublin’s past and present. They trace the boundaries and geography of the city and the social, cultural, and business life of Dubliners through the centuries. This interactive webinar brings together the content creators of these remarkable collections as well as the historians, geographers, and curators of digitised records to showcase what Dublin city and county material is available online. The event will show how these digital collections can be used together to give us a multi-dimensional view of Dublin’s past and present. The event will be chaired by Deputy City Librarian at Dublin City Libraries and Archives, Brendan Teeling.

  • Emma Clarke, Founder of Dublin Ghost Signs
  • Karen De Lacey, County Archivist at Fingal County Council
