Ireland Illustrated launched!

Limerick in times past

Over 8 years in the making, Ireland Illustrated was launched today at the Moore Institute, National University of Ireland, Galway. Ireland Illustrated, 1680-1860, is a database of over 500 images of Ireland, with accompanying text, drawn from more than 50 manuscript and printed works, and highlighting several neglected or rarely accessible sources. It provides an opportunity to examine how, in the case of Ireland, diverse representations were created in the course of two centuries.
