Irish Times: Vast archive of early Irish history digitised and put online. “They include copies of manuscripts painstakingly transcribed by Brother Ó Cléirigh for his project which would become the Annals of the Four Masters and based on books which were destroyed during the violent upheavals in Ireland during the 17th century. There are also several books on martyrology and the lives of the saints from the medieval period. Twelve of the books are in old Irish and the 13th is in Latin. There are plans to translate them all into English.”
RTÉ Radio 1 via PlayerFM: Digital archive of Conradh na Gaeilge’s weekly newspaper goes online. “Cuan Ó Seireadáin, Curator with Conradh na Gaeilge, speaks to us ahead of the launch of an online archive of ‘An Claidheamh Soluis’ from 1899-1932.” Many apologies — this is audio-only. I could not find a text news article about the archive launch. It may be because I wasn’t searching for the correct keywords in Irish. If you’ve got a link to a text story, please comment with it. Thank you!
