Irish Archives and History Projects on Facebook

ut;s Great to see so many social media sites now focused on local hisotry and archives

Come Here To Me!

As part of background research for my dissertation, I am trying to collate a list of Irish archives/museums and community/individual history projects that have an active Facebook page and post historical material. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far.

Do you know of anymore?


Dublin Dockers – Amazing selection of scanned images. Post regularly.

Irish Queer Archive – Excellent quality of scans and descriptions of items. Posts every few days.

Irish Photo Archive – Amazing selection of images. Updated at least once a day.

Irish Traditional Music Archive – Mainly contemporary posts. Some historical images.

Where Were You? – Series of photos posted in batches every other week. Lots of personal comments and memories.


Irish Architectural Archive – Post regularly but not much historical stuff.

County Archives

Clare – Updated quite a bit. Interesting conservation photos.

Cork – Very irregular posts. Some historical material.
