Dublin is a city of fantastic archives, but many of us will only ever explore a small selection of them, if we can find the time to explore any at all! In recent years social media has allowed archives and institutions like the National Library to share some of the items within their collections with the general public. One particularly interesting archive which has recently begun sharing some of its items on Facebook is the Capuchin Archive on Church Street. The friars of the Capuchin Order from Church Street attended those executed in 1916 at Kilmainham Gaol and administered the last rites, and their archive contains incredible items from the Irish revolutionary period and beyond.
Do you know of any other archives or institutions sharing their content in this way?
