It’s election 2016!

Maria Ryan, of the National Library of Ireland, writes:

We are currently running a competition which aims to engage with the general public.

“Remembering 1916, Recording 2016” is our largest project to date and we want to reflect the participatory nature of this year by asking the public to help us select sites for inclusion in the NLI Web Archive.

In short, we are looking for people to nominate websites which record the events of 1916 and websites which reflect life in Ireland in 2016.

We are asking you to nominate websites under the following two categories:

What website best remembers the events of 1916?

What website best records Irish life in 2016?

The shortlisted websites will be archived and made available for generations to come in the NLI’s web archive. We would love to hear what suggestions your readers may have.

Thomas Street, Dublin, 1968.

Sisters, pals or vintage clothing business partners?

Where are they now?

The National Library would love to hear from you.

UPDATE: The BBC has apparently  solved the mystery. “The sister of one of the girls, Margaret Collins, posted a message to say that it was Elizabeth Collins and Angela Arnold,” it reports. More as we get it.
