UCD and the Irish Independent have collaborated to produce the 1916 Collection, an insightful and informative series of ten supplements.  These supplements allow UCD to share a wealth of knowledge via our expert academics and archival materials. As a major holder of archives of national and international significance relating to the Decade of Centenaries (1912-1923), the university’s vision is to inform national debate and understanding with an objective scholarly voice, in a manner that brings education and new perspectives to the fore.
