The Century Ireland Project


The 10th Irish division before embarking to Gallipoli

The Century Ireland project is an online historical newspaper that tells the story of the events of Irish life a century ago.

Century Ireland is published on a fortnightly basis, beginning in May 2013, and is the main online portal for the Irish decade of commemorations, 1912-23.

News reporting on life in Ireland 100 years ago is supported by a wealth of visual, archival and contextual material to facilitate an understanding of the complexities of Irish life in the year between 1912 and 1923.

Century Ireland is produced by a team of researchers at Boston College Ireland and the project is funded by the Department of the Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.

Century Ireland is hosted by RTÉ and the site is complimented by their broadcast schedule and material from the RTÉ archives.

Recent broadcasts have included accounts of the role of Irish soldiers at Suvla Bay at Gallipoli, and of the involvement of The 10th (Irish) Division in the savage battles for the Dardanelles, which would be of interest to Tinteán readers. see: rte/centuryireland; also: Tinteán and Gallipoli Commemorations
