Collection snapshot: West Clare Brigade Papers

by Dr Kirsten Mulrennan, Archivist

Clare Library‘s History Week ran from 16-20 October 2023, with a wide range of live and online events held around the county.

As part of this programme, Dr Kirsten Mulrennan, Archivist for Engagement, Exhibition and Outreach, contributed a short video introduction to the papers of the West Clare Brigade held at UL Library.

The video summarises the historically significant information in the West Clare Brigade papers, and outlines how they can be used to conduct further research into the 20 volunteers mentioned in the collection.
