MA student Margaret examines a newspaper from the Museum's archives

Open the Archives Project

Welcome to the second iteration of #OpentheArchives! Over the last few months, MPhil student Margaret Aimar has carefully selected a researched a number of items from our archive. Her focus was ‘Irish Leisure through the Decades’, leading to a diverse and delightful array of print materials. We will be sharing her findings over the coming weeks, so keep an eye on our Archive webpage to read about everything from midsummer balls to state-of-the-art computer centres.

First up is a photo from the 1908 Dublin Typographical Benevolent Fund’s tug-of-war championship. Learn more here!
