The TechArchives Project

The TechArchives project collects stories about Ireland’s long and convoluted relationship with information technology and preserves them in a unique series of archives.

We record the recollections of pioneers in computing, software development and network services, publish them on this web site and store them, plus related digital files, in a secure repository that future generations will be able to consult.

Dive into the interactive timelines on this site to retrace the emergence and evolution of key technologies and industry sectors. Then read personal testimonies by authors whose experiences seldom feature in other public records. And visit the anniversaries section for retrospective accounts of landmark events.

Newsmail, operating as a social enterprise, manages the TechArchives project with support from Ireland’s information technology community.
