Irish collection (2)

Posted by wcmlibrary on December 8, 2010

Way back in March I blogged about our Irish Collection and mentioned that we would be adding more detail to the catalogue records for the Royal Commission report on the arrest of Francis Sheehy-Skeffingtonpamphlet collection.

Well, I’ve finally finished fully cataloguing the Irish pamphlet collection and what a job it was.

The collection now runs to 42 boxes and includes information on a variety of subjects, including 2 boxes on the Easter Rising and 6 boxes on the Northern Ireland Troubles, covering the period 1968-1998.

There is also a collection of periodicals from, or about Ireland and information about the Irish Labour Party, the Irish Trade Union Congress and its successor the Irish Congress of Trade Unions.

To find any of the Irish collection books or pamphlets search our online catalogue at
