Maids of the Mountain 1st XI (1920)The Dublin City Sports Archive was established by Dublin City Library and Archive in September 2010 to provide a lasting legacy to Dublin’s term as European Capital of Sport.

Dublin has a rich sporting heritage, with sport also playing an intrinsic role in the city’s social and cultural identity. Every local sports club or organization produces its own original records such as photographs, programs, minute books, financial records, correspondence, lists of membership, results of competitions, social events ephemera, and scrapbooks. These records are evidence of its activities and its significance at local and national level, and are of immense value to researchers.
