New Irish research projects from Trinity College Dublin

Two new projects of interest from Trinity College Dublin...

1641 Depositions Project

This project aims to transcribe and digitise the 1641 Depositions, a unique manuscript collection, held in the Library of Trinity College Dublin. The collection comprises 3,400 depositions, examinations and associated materials (approximately 19,000 pages) in which Protestant men and women of all classes tell of their experiences following the outbreak of the rebellion by the Catholic Irish in October 1641. The project will be done in collaboration with IBM.
