Beyond 2022: Ireland’s Virtual Record Treasury
Beyond 2022 is a project by Trinity College Dublin in collaboration with the National Archives, the National Archives (UK), the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland and the Irish Manuscripts Commission.
The project aims to create a virtual reconstruction of the Record Treasury of the Public Record Office of Ireland which was destroyed during the Civil War in June 1922.
The 3D model has been built from original architectural plans and early 20th-century photographic evidence. The project has been compiling an inventory of material destroyed in 1922 and is identifying surviving material and surrogate copies or substitutes available in various repositories in Ireland and worldwide. The new website was launched in June 2022 and can be found at https://www.virtualtreasury.ie
It is a dynamic project and the website will be added to as new material becomes available.
