Tríd an Lionsa

A second season of the revealing series examining the early Irish photographic collections of images from the period 1880-1902. This new series examines 6 early Irish photographic collections. There is much that we can learn from them about our image of ourselves, and our past. The series asks why the photographs were taken, and by whom? Who was the viewer, who was being viewed? What was included in the frame, and what was left out? Presented by University of Limerick historian Dr. Úna Ní Bhroiméil.

Produced by Sibéal Teo
