Clonbrock Collection

The Clonbrock Collection contains over 2,000 glass plates spanning the years 1860-1930. The photographers were members of the Dillon family, Barons Clonbrock, of Ahascragh, Co. Galway, a family of enthusiastic amateur photographers (particularly Gerald Dillon and his wife Augusta Crofton Dillon). The images provide a substantial and varied pictorial record of life on a landed estate.

An index to the entire collection is available in a searchable database. Please note that images are not attached to the database. A selection of catalogue records linked to images is available in the Online Catalogue.
