UCD releases 'Destruction of Dublin' video as part of 'Towards 2016' project

UCD has released a new video as part of its 'Towards 2016' project.

The video, narrated by Dr Conor Mulvagh, focuses of 'The destruction of Dublin'.

The aim of the Towards 2016 project was to survey University College Dublin’s holdings of material relating to the 1916 Rising and to digitise a selection of this material in order to make it available.

The material which has been selected is of considerable historical and cultural significance and provides an insight into disseminated interpretations of the Rising in the years immediately after it and later.

This project also provides indexes detailing UCD’s holdings of this type of material which will be of use to scholars, researchers, members of the public and those involved in future digitisation projects

The video, posted today, features 14 photos of the aftermath of the rising taken by an unknown photographer.
