Our Local Studies Digital Archive is a large repository that explores the fascinating history and heritage of the county. The digital archive consists of items such as photographs, postcards, maps, pamphlets and notebooks.
Our vision is to bring resources relating to the history of Cork to a wide audience, by making these resources easily accessible online. The digital archive is constantly growing and expanding as new material is digitised.
The topics covered in our archive are quite varied, some subject areas include Cork’s railway history, photographs of Youghal and Bandon, the history of castles across the county, the War of Independence, nineteenth century estate maps and the Irish Tourist Association Topographical and General Survey files from the 1940s.
