Step Eight: Irish Community Archive Network
Check to see if one of the online archives in the Irish Community Archive Network covers your 5k area.
Community groups in counties Mayo, Galway, Clare and Wicklow are working hard to make their local history and heritage collections available online. These archives contain unique articles, photographs, documents, oral histories and personal stories, as well as information on their towns, villages and townlands. You can discover fascinating insights into local Irish life and a range of resources for your KnowYour5k submission.
