We Need Irish Archive Material

Irish archives resource topmastThe Tyneside Irish Cultral Society in collaboration with The Customs House South Shields will be working on a new project in the New Year, we will be looking at archive material to inspire and stimulate young people in schools on South Tyneside.  Which will be used to develop and devise a music and dance event which will be performed at The Customs House.

Can you help? We need old photographs, Old newspapers relating to the Irish Migrant population, old artefacts, old letters etc. Anything from the early 1900’s through to 1970’s would be fantastic.

All items will be treated with the upmost respect and will be returned after the project ends.


Any contribution would be most welcome, please contact Fiona Kelly at The Customs House, Mill Dam, South Shields, Tyne and Wear NE33 1ES
