With love from the people of Ireland

The Royal Irish Academy, the National Museum of Ireland, and The Irish Times are collaborating with the EU Presidency, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and Adobe to bring you a gift of A History of Ireland in 100 objects ‘from the people of Ireland to the people of the world’.

Beautifully presented, A History of Ireland in 100 Objects allows you to explore the story and culture of the island through objects such as the Book of Kells, golden jewellery, fashion, the Titanic, a Mesolithic fish trap, an emigrant's suitcase, documents and scrolls, and even a washing machine.

It is now available as an interactive app for most types of tablet, or can be viewed on computer, smartphone or an ereader. It will be available, free of charge, until the end of March. Find out more here, or get a taster from the video below.
