Public Record Office of Ireland: The Story of a Building

An exhibition of photographs, architectural plans and drawings, maps and elevations, video and salvaged records to mark the centenary of the destruction of the Public Record Office on 30 June 1922 is presented by the National Archives in partnership with the Irish Architectural Archive. It tells the story of the once magnificent building that was the Public Record Office of Ireland; from its construction to its burning during the Battle of the Four Courts in June 1922 to its final reconstruction.
