The digital collection Letters of 1916: A Year in the Life has been created by Maynooth University. The aim of this project is to collect letters and postcards documenting the year 1916 – more exactly from November 1915 to Oxctober 1916 – in all its dimensions, not only the Easter Rising and the Great War, but also daily life and business. Not only cultural institutions contribute to this collections. Individuals can give letters to be digitized or transcribe letters. At the start there were already some 2,200 letters. The letters can be searched freely or browsed for particular themes and months.
