A collection of striking images from County Wexford's storied past have been digitised and made freely available online from the National Library of Ireland as part of a new initiative entitled 'Around the Island'.
Among the amazing scenes captured are a peaceful day in Courtown Harbour, onlookers lined up along Main Street in Wexford town, smiling pupils at Good Counsel College, New Ross and a busy day on the Strand in Rosslare.
The library is now inviting the people of Wexford to connect and reconnect with the county's past by taking a look through the collection.
In 2007, the National Library initiated a major project to digitise its collections of glass plate negatives. Since then, more than 60,000 images of Ireland and Irish life have been made available online.
With photographs drawn from a range of historic collections, the online catalogue offers viewers unique insights into life across the island of Ireland from the middle of the 19th century all the way up to the late 20th century.
The catalogue can be accessed via http://catalogue.nli.ie, and visitors can search the collections according to a number of criteria, including year and region.
