St. Patrick's Festival presents

Treasures of the Military Archive

The Military Archives at Cathal Brugha Barracks, Rathmines, is the place of deposit of the records of the Irish Defence Forces and Department of Defence.

As well as State records, the Military Archives are the custodians of many privately donated collections of records as well as a number of historical artefacts. In keeping with this year’s festival theme of Treasures Commandant Daniel Ayiotis, the Officer in Charge of the Military Archives, will introduce a personally curated selection of his favorite items which will be on display afterwards in the reading room.
