The Irish Archives Resource (IAR) is an online portal to archive collections across Ireland, north and south. The goal of the IAR is to introduce people to the wealth of archival resources available in Ireland. This resource pack publication is the first in a series of educational packs organised by topic that the IAR hope to produce in order to highlight these resources.
“The Present Duty of Irishwomen” is an A4 booklet designed to highlight archival resources that document Irish women and their contributions to Irish life. It highlights the difference Irishwomen have made to Irish life and the sense of duty that leads Irish women to contribute to their communities.
