Rescuing the Written Record: the virtual reconstruction of the Public Record Office of Ireland

Venue: Courthouse

On 30 June 1922, in the opening engagement of the Civil War, a catastrophic explosion destroyed seven centuries of historical records in the Public Record Office of Ireland. In June 2022, a century after the fire, the Virtual Record Treasury of Ireland was launched to digitally recreate the lost building and its collections. This exciting research is funded by the Department of Culture under the Decade of Centenaries programme 2012-2023.
