The Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) has developed a new resource for exploring the period 1900–25 on the island of Ireland.
Ireland, 1900–25: Crisis, War and Revolution, brings together documents from PRONI’s collections to provide accounts of this period from a range of sources and perspectives. It encompasses some of the most significant events in modern Irish history, from the introduction of the Third Home Rule Bill to the First World War, the Easter Rising, and partition and the formation of Northern Ireland.
The resource has been developed by PRONI in partnership with the University of Kent and the History Teachers’ Association NI. It has been designed particularly for A-level students, however it will be of interest to anyone exploring this period of history.
The resource will be launched officially on 12 May 2021, in a free online event featuring Janet Hancock (PRONI), Dr Timothy Bowman (University of Kent) and Jim McBride (HTANI). The speakers will showcase the new resource and discuss a selection of records included in it.
