From the Archives 1916: Revolution and Recollection

Galway County Council Archives travelling exhibition "From the Archives, 1916: Revolution and Recollection" is currently on display in our Galway campus library.

As part of the 1916 centenary programme of events Galway County Council Archives presents a small selection of material from it holdings, which relate in some way to the events or people involved in the 1916 Easter Rising.

The items depicted in the display are just a sample of the varied and wonderful collections in the Archives.
