RTÉ Archives Exhibition

National Photographic Archive

‘Ireland on the Box’ is a free exhibition celebrating six decades of television in Ireland. This collaboration between RTÉ and the National Library of Ireland (NLI) is curated by RTÉ Archives and explores entertainment, drama, sport, music, education and news and current affairs programming, through RTÉ’s remarkable collection of photographs. From ‘Roll it there, Róisín’ to ‘A nation holds its breath’ and from ‘Well, Holy God’ to ‘Coola Boola’, iconic phrases from popular TV programmes and national moments of celebration connect visitors to recent shared cultural history, represented in images that feature the many familiar faces that have graced Irish television screens throughout 60 years of RTÉ television.
