Trinity College Library publishes Irish soldiers’ letters and diaries from the Great War

‘Fit as fiddles and as hard as nails’ is the name given to an online project recently launched in TCD which draws on the special collections in the Library relating to WWI. It takes its inspiration from a growing interest in the history of Irish service in the British army in 1914-18. This new project gives free access not only digitised images of over 1500 pages of WW1 letters and diaries, but transcriptions of the texts are also provided.
