What work the Heritage Council is funding this year:

The IAR is undertaking a scoping project, jointly funded by the Heritage Council and the Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs. This project will investigate how the IAR can facilitate the inclusion of more detailed, multi-level archives descriptions on its website, enhancing and enriching the available content and allowing researchers to discover even more archival collections.
