National Library of Ireland adds online images

The National Library of Ireland has launched an enhanced online service, which has 34,000 photographs recording almost 100 years of Irish history.

“The library holds the world’s largest collection of photographs relating to Ireland,” said National Library director Fiona Ross.

Last year, the National Library introduced an online service whereby 22,000 photographs from the Lawrence, Poole and Independent Newspapers collections were added to its website database.

Since then, library staff have digitised an additional 12,000 images from five other important National Photographic Archive collections: Eason, Stereo Pair, Clarke, Tempest and Keogh.

The 34,000 photographs of Ireland were taken between 1860-1954."
