    The blurb says:

    An attempt to recreate Ireland’s archives destroyed in a fire in June 1922 has been successful to a “greater extent than ever previously imagined,” the historian behind the project has said.

    The Beyond 2022: Ireland’s Virtual Record Treasury research project has sought to retrieve as many of the documents as possible through duplicates in other archives.

    It aims by June 30th, 2022, the centenary of the fire, to recreate virtually as much of the archive as possible in a digital format that can be accessible to everybody.


    Great news for those with Irish Ancestry! :D
