SPECIAL VISIT BY IRISH ARCHIVE CENTRE
In June ISWE and Bangor University Archives and Special Collections were delighted to host Nicola Kelly on a short Erasmus placement. Nicola is Archivist at the OPW-Maynooth Archive and Research Centre based at Castletown House in Ireland – a specialist repository, established in 2008 to collect, preserve, promote and make available for research archival collections relating to Irish estates, many of which remain in private ownership. Nicola works closely with colleagues at the Centre for the Study of Historic Irish Houses and Estates.
The placement provided an excellent opportunity to share best practice on archives, collections-based research and heritage interpretation and included visits to Penrhyn Castle, Storiel Museum and the Bodorgan estate office.
We hope to visit Nicola over in Ireland in the near future!
