Maynooth Archive and Research Centre

Post by Christopher »

The National University of Ireland, Maynooth and the Office of Public Works Maynooth Archive and Research Centre is located at Castletown House, Celbridge. Researchers should be able to study the archives and other sources dealing with the history of Irish estates, their houses and inhabitants, later this year when the Reading Room officially opens for business. It is hoped that there will be an online facility as well.

One of the items held at the new Centre is the Strokestown Park House Archive which provides a unique glimpse into the Anglo-Irish lifestyle of the Pakenham Mahon family in County Roscommon between the eighteenth and twentieth centuries. The records in this Archive consists of 6,000 documents in two hundred boxes. These documents are being restored and listed prior to the opening of the Reading Room.
