The Treaty, 1921: Records from the Archives

Presented by the National Archives in partnership with the Royal Irish Academy and the National Library of Ireland, with records from the collections of the Military Archives and University College Dublin. The Anglo-Irish Treaty is one of the most significant historical documents held by the National Archives. Using it as a centrepiece, the National Archives will present an exhibition that marks its role as the official repository of the records of the State, one hundred years since its formation. The Treaty, 1921: Records from the Archives opens up significant historical records, official documents and private papers for the first time in the history of the State, including the first public presentation of the Treaty document. The exhibition is accompanied by a programme of workshops, curated talks, a digital programme as well as guided tours, all designed to encourage historical enquiry and promote the widest possible interest in exploring and understanding the impact and legacy of the events that occurred during the revolutionary period, including global reactions and the experience of women. 6 December 2021 – 27 March 2022 Opening hours: 10am – 5pm, daily Coach House Gallery, Dublin Castle Gardens, Dame Street, Dublin 2, D02 X822 https://www.dublincastle.ie
