Congratulations to Liam Byrne on the launch of the most impressive website on County Roscommon, www.roscommonhistory.ie. The site contains wonderful photographs which are very easy on the eye. The website is very well laid out and organised. There is excellent content on books, manuscripts, and other social and historical aspects of County Roscommon. The content is written with good humour and is a treasure for local historians and genealogists.
As was mentioned in an earlier blog, bona fide researchers can contact Liam to visit the Roscommon History archives. Liam can be contacted at
firstname.lastname@example.org. With so many excellent photographs and examples of old manuscripts relating to County Roscommon on the site, most of the 250 MB for the site has been used up and Roscommon History is looking for sponsors to help fund future upgrades.
