New Online Irish Archives Resource


This web site contains information about archival collections open for public research in Ireland. Its purpose is to aid researchers in finding collections relevant to their studies. The site allows the public to search a wide range of Irish archives online; some of the collections featured include the Irish Film Archive, the Guinness family archives, archives from UCC’s Boole Library and a large number of city and county council archives.

Read this article about this new online Irish archive where
“Brian McGee says one of his personal favourite archives referenced on the site is a recent collection of deeds on properties in Cork city dating back to the 16th and 17th centuries. These deeds were found lying in a skip in the Netherlands.”

Some information is provided about using the site for Family History & Genealogical Research.
