Do you recognise anyone in these photographs?
This exhibition includes images of Irish people, photographed in a wide variety of locations, at different times. Many of their names have been lost, or were never recorded. We would like to document these photographs as accurately as possible, and identify and acknowledge the people who feature in them.
If you know any of the men, women and children who make these images so unforgettable, please get in touch with us via email or reach out to us on social media.
