The Wexford War of Independence and Civil War Digitisation Day takes place tomorrow (Friday) at Wexford Library, Mallin Street, Wexford on Friday, 10th December 2021, from 11am to 4pm.

It is a chance for us to engage with families whose ancestors were directly involved in events which led to the formation of our state and to the rich history of county Wexford.”
Staff from Wexford Library will record the story of whom they belonged to and why they are important. The objects will be scanned or photographed. Historians and experts will also be on hand to discuss the significance of these treasures.
