Century Ireland launched

A new project, Century Ireland, was launched On Tuesday, 7 May.  It's an online historical newspaper that tells the story of the events of Irish life a century ago, and is published on a fortnightly basis. It will appear every two weeks from now until 2022.

Century Ireland is produced by a team of researchers at Boston College Ireland, is funded by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and is hosted by RTÉ.  It will illustrate the events of 1913 and onwards with material from the cultural institutions, including a substantial amount of material from the NLI.

Check out the first issue. Follow the project on Twitter @CenturyIRL
