Research Topic - 5th Year Visit to the City Archives

On Monday 21st of November, 5th Year students visited the City Archives, Pearse St, as part of their preparation for their Research Topic. This was preceeded by a vist to a specialist bookstore and a brief stop off at 'The Mansion House' where the 1st Dail was held in 1919.

At the archives, students were given reader cards and introduced to researching methods, including working with newspaper and book catalogues and using microfilm/microfiche. Students benifited from the day and returned to class with interesting research and ideas for their projects. Thanks to all those at the City Archives for the tour, their help and the above photo.
