National Archives of Ireland to hold Open Day, 26 Sept

The National Archives of Ireland has announced details for this year's Open Day, which will be held on Saturday 26 September at Bishop Street, Dublin 8, from 10am to 5pm. It's free.

There are 30-minute tours to the Conservation workspace and the Storage and Preservation areas. Staff will be on hand to introduce visitors to the resources of the Reading Room while members of Accredited Genealogists Ireland will be on hand to discuss family history sources. There will be an exhibition and book stalls, and a series of 45-minute lectures will run on the hour every hour to present details of about collections and various aspects of the Archives' work.

As space is limited, booking is recommended for the tours and lectures. In previous years, these have been over-subscribed so I'd suggest you reserve your space quickly if you plan to attend.
