The Military Service Pensions Archive: a Unique Historical and Personal Legacy

Venue: Courthouse

As the Decade of Commemorations comes to a close, Cécile Chemin, Senior Archivist at the Military Archives of Ireland and Director of the Military Service (1916-1923) Pensions Collection Project, assesses the legacy of the MSP Archive as a personal, collective and national inheritance. Over the past years, this archive has enriched historical research, supported local commemorative events and enabled countless families to know more about their relatives. Today, the Project continues to uncover unheard voices, excavate meanings, in order to offer new perspectives to understand how the conflict impacted a whole generation and countless families across the island, eventually shaping the rest of their lives.
