The online papers were officially launched today by President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins.

Universities Ireland acquired facsimile copies of 43 sets of papers relating to the 1916 Courts Martial from the National Archive in Kew. These unique documents have been collated, catalogued and prepared for public release on the Universities Ireland, the PRONI and the National Archive websites. There will be open access to the documents for scholars and members of the public on all three websites.
