On this day in 1991, Trinity College connected to the internet becoming the first organisation to do so in Ireland..
The connection was made using a shared 19.2 Kbps telecoms link with TCD start-up IEunet - it was set up by Cormac Callanan and Michael Nowlan.
The then Telecom Eireann, which is now known as Eir, made the connection.
Nowadays, despite difficult access to broadband in parts of the country, 85pc of Irish homes have access to the internet.
However, a further 16pc of Irish people say they have never used the internet.
