Little Treasures


Via National Treasures:

National Treasures is a campaign to crowd-source everyday objects that explore the history of the island of Ireland over the past 100 years.

In association with RTÉ, the National Museum of Ireland and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, we are asking you to participate in the creation of a digital archive of historical objects. Do you have an object at home that reveals a fascinating part of our history, culture or heritage? If so, you can add it [by posting an image] here 

By collecting objects and revealing the fascinating stories behind them, we want this project to form a unique crowd-sourced tapestry of modern Irish history, one that emphasises the voices of ordinary Irish people.
