Éire á Móradh: Singing the Praises of Ireland

From New Zealand's Otago University the online exhibition Éire á Móradh: Singing the Praises of Ireland aims to celebrate the Irish and Ireland. Very much like a traditional exhibition you see selected covers or pages from books and manuscripts with explanatory material. The range is from the Book of Kells and Book of Durrow to significant 'modern' Irish writers such as W.B. Yeats, James Joyce, and Seán O'Faoláin.

It's unfortunate those putting together the exhibit choose not to take advantage of the linking opportunity of the web to guide the reader into greater depth material.
