Beyond 2022: Ireland’s Virtual Record Treasury
On 30 June 1922, at the outset of the Irish Civil War, a cataclysmic explosion and fire destroyed the Public Record Office of Ireland at the Four Courts, Dublin. Flames and heat consumed seven centuries of Ireland’s recorded history, stored in a magnificent six-storey Victorian repository known as the Record Treasury.
On the centenary of the 1922 blaze, Beyond 2022 will unveil Ireland’s Virtual Record Treasury—a digital reconstruction of the Public Record Office of Ireland building and its collections.
Ireland’s Virtual Record Treasury will serve both as essential platform for academic research and a public resource with global reach and impact.
