The National Library of Ireland joined the Flickr Commons in June 2011 to give wider exposure to our images and encourage the public to add descriptions, tags and comments to our image collections.
The Library's images within The Commons have no known copyright restrictions; this means that the National Library of Ireland is not aware of any current copyright restrictions on the photographs, usually because the Library owns the copyright or the term of copyright has expired.
