Ireland has a rich and long history. It is a land of fable and of strife, from the legendary warrior Fionn Mac Cumhaill (anglicized as Finn McCool) and the god-like Tuatha De Danann to the potato famine and the more recent Troubles. In the last decade, Ireland has experienced an economic boom and assumed a new place in the political landscape via its role in the European Union. Ireland's libraries work to preserve its rich cultural heritage while striving to provide a contemporary range of services and access points. Ireland's museums and libraries are preserving its illuminated and other historical manuscripts and finding ways to digitally present and provide access to materials related to contemporary historical events and cultural contributions. Local libraries also offer unique digital contributions to the nation's ongoing preservation and resource-access efforts. This article explores some of the exhibits and online resources that offer a glimpse into both Ireland's history and its contemporary library services. (Contains 3 figures.)
