The result of one of the most successful crowd sourcing projects ever conducted in Ireland, “The Letters of 1916: A Year in the Life” comes to Tralee Library this evening. The goal of the project, organised by staff at Maynooth University, is to create ‘a year in the life’ of Ireland. This evening between 5 and 7, people are invited to bring letters with an Irish theme – written between November 1915 and October 1916 and to have them digitised. The project’s new discovery database is available at letters1916.ie.
