A third entry in a row with an Irish reference … I recently had cause to look for Lissadell House, featured in the Yeats poem In Memory Of Eva Gore-Booth And Con Markiewicz.

I was interested to find a picture (� Sligo County Library, Eccles Collection) of the House in Ask about ireland, which I had not seen before. This is an initiative of An Chomhairle Leabharlanna and The Heritage Council.

AskAboutIreland and the Cultural Heritage Project is an initiative of public libraries together with local museums and archives in the digitisation and online publication of the original, the unusual and the unique material from their local studies’ collections to create a national Internet resource for culture.

The picture is a part of a ‘narrative‘ about the house. The site is nicely done, although there is not much material there now and one wonders how such an approach will scale.
