Nationalist Photographic Collection

We are delighted to announce that The Nationalist newspaper, Carlow, has donated its photographic collection to Carlow County Archive. The photographs document a vast array of events and it is hoped that there will be immense interest in this collection.

The collection includes photographs that were published in the newspaper as well as some that were not. We intend to add the images to our online Photographic Archive and look forward to making them available once they have been scanned and catalogued.

For now, a taster is made available: photographs of a visit to Carlow by Patrick Hillery, President of Ireland, during 1983. Click here to browse photographs in the collection.
