Archive of the Irish in Britain visit – 16 Oct

16th October 2018 @ 11:00 - 12:30 UTC

We are delighted to announce a special members-only visit to the Archive of the Irish in Britain. The Archive consists of collections of documents, audio and video recordings, books, photographs and ephemera cataloguing the history of the Irish in Britain from the late nineteenth century to the present day. 

Dr Tony Murray, the curator of the archive, will give an introductory talk and lead two groups through unique materials in the archive before leading a question and answer session.  There are two sessions available to paid-up ILS members with a capacity of 10 members for each session, so we’ll have to operate on a first-come, first-served basis for this visit. If you would like to book for the visit please e-mail the Honorary Secretary stating your time-slot preference: irishlitsoc@gmail.com. We expect this event will be over-subscribed so we’re sorry if we cannot accommodate everybody on this occasion.

SLOT 1: 11am-12.30pm

SLOT 2: 2pm-3.30pm  

The archive has been a crucial resource for the development of The Irish Studies Centre, see the video above for more details on the history of the archive and the centre.

Nearest Bus(es): 415, 25, 67, 115, 205, 254
