A Digital Journey through Irish Theatre

NUI Galway has teamed up with The Abbey Theatre to digitise the Abbey Archive for future generations of theatre scholars. The Abbey archive, which contains over 1.8 million items, is one of the world’s most significant archival collections, providing a fascinating insight into Irish theatre, history, culture and society.

The project will be of great benefit to students of the new undergraduate degree in Drama, Theatre and Performance at NUI Galway and and will help  attract a new wave of researchers from Ireland and abroad to come to Galway to learn about Yeats, Synge, Lady Gregory and the many other great writers associated with the Abbey.
