DRI Members Dublin City Library and Archive have published a new collection: the Royal Dublin Fusiliers Association Archive.

The Royal Dublin Fusiliers Association (RDFA) was established in 1996 to commemorate all Irish men and women who volunteered, served and died in the First World War 1914-1918. In 2005, the RDFA decided to place its archive with Dublin City Library & Archive (DCLA), where it is available for public consultation in the DCLA Reading Room. This material has been digitised by DCLA and ingested into DRI for long-term preservation. The collection provides a fascinating insight into the lives and experiences of Irish people in the First World War. 


DRI is funded by the Department of Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science (DFHERIS) via the Higher Education Authority (HEA) and the Irish Research Council (IRC).
