The John O'Donovan Archive

The John O’Donovan Archive

Perry O’Donovan presents an ambitious and vast digital project. It has clearly been in gestation for a substantial period of time and the MA DAH programme offered an opportunity to give it a kickstart and to provide the researcher with an impetus to deliver a superb digital artefact. The John O’Donovan Archive seeks to gather together materials relating to the life and times of historian and textual scholar John O’Donovan (1806-61) — Seán Ó Donnabháin in Irish — for the purpose re-presenting (and re-assessing) them in this, the early 21st century.
