Members of the public are invited to bring photographs, postcards, letters, diaries, medals or other memorabilia in relation to this turbulent time in our history.

Cathaoirleach of Wexford County Council, Cllr Barbara-Anne Murphy told WexfordLocal.com; “I’m delighted that we are holding this digitisation day. 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.
