As of 2023 this course will be offered free of charge. Commencing in October 2023, classes will be held on Monday evenings at Dublin City Library and Archive, 139-144 Pearse Street, Dublin 2, and will include two visits to archive services.
This collection of images from the Fáilte Ireland Photographic Collection, held at Dublin City Library and Archive Pearse Street, highlights the surprising and unimagined day of bright sunshine and blue skies that finally emerged on the bank holiday of Monday, August 3, 1953.
My first week here was an adjustment week, during which I mostly learnt about the background of the Dublin Council, the Dublin City Library and Archives, and my primary duties. I visited Mansion House, City Hall, Hugh Lane Gallery, and 14 Henrietta Street in the second week, guided by my internship manager, to learn more about Dublin's urban history.
