NAI closed for annual Media Preview, 3-7 December

As happens every year, the Reading Room of the National Archives of Ireland will be closed to the public throughout the first week of December for the annual Media Preview.

This is when news organisations are given access to the annual release of government archives so that the media can provide coverage of pertinent issues in the New Year. This year, the archives being scrutinised relate primarily to the year 1988.

These newly released archives will become available for public inspection from 9:15am on Wednesday 2 January 2019 at the NAI, Bishop Street, Dublin 8.

The Media Preview will take place 3–7 December. Only bonafide journalists and broadcasters will be admitted to the Reading Room.
