Archive Repository Project

Archive Repository Project

Work has begun on the removal of archives from the warehouse of the National Archives. The move is part of preparatory works by the Office of Public Works before the commencement later this year of construction of a new archival repository. The new repository will provide international-standard accommodation for approximately 350,000 archival boxes. This extra storage capacity will help to facilitate the transfer of backlog records currently held in government departments, ensuring their permanent preservation for future generations of researchers. The project is being funded as part of the government’s Ireland 2040 initiative.

Decant of material from our warehouse to facilitate the redevelopment of a modern archival repository.
