Over 25,000 images now online in Foto

The number of images in Clare County Library's online photographic collection has now exceeded 25,000. The collections cover people, family albums, archaeological sites, buildings and graveyard inscriptions. We would like to thank all those who have contributed photograph and collections, and who have identified people and places in the photos. All photographs of which the library has copyright can be downloaded for personal use from the website.

The photo above, from the O’Callaghan-Westropp Collection, shows members of the Free State army (with bouquets attached to their bicycles) on patrol in the grounds of Moyriesk House, Clooney after the kidnapping of Mrs Geraldine Crowe by local people during the Civil War, following a dispute over grazing rights.
