  • Army Archives.

    I believe the army archives are kept in Collins Barracks. Can anyone give me more information. Who's in charge? What access is there? Do they accept postal/e-mail queries? Have they a website? (I can't find one on Google)

    Many thanks.

    I thought that military archives are in the Brugha, I doubt they have a website outside of military.ie and probably do not have email access. Postal is the way to go. I don't know who the new head of military archives is.

        Why not, it might bring a bit of excitement to the Brugha:D

          Official Military Archives are in Portobello Barracks

          Check out military.ie for some descriptive stuff about them. It's actually quite good.


          However, each long-established unit with offficers and NCOs mindful of tradition also keeps records and unit logs, which themselves are military archives of a sort. Sometimes this develops into a little museum - the Connacht Ranger museum in Renmore being a lovely example.

            Actually its Cathal Brugha Barracks,not since the renameing has it been called Portobello,
            Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
            Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
            The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
            The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
            The best lack all conviction, while the worst
            Are full of passionate intensity.

                The research room is small, only 4 desks so you need to call for an appointment. Other than that the staff are very helpful. Have not been in there for a while so not sure who is the current SO. I think I have the phone number around here somewhere. Will send to anyone who wants it.:flagwave:
