Digital Repository of Ireland

DRI is the digital infrastructure that links together and preserves the rich and varied cultural, historical, and qualitative social science data held by Irish Institutions, and provides a central access point and multimedia tools to research and interact with archived data. DRI will allow the public, students and scholars to access and research the history, cultural heritage and social life of Ireland in ways never possible before.
