Digital Repository/London Embassy Ireland 2016 Open Day. The Embassy of Ireland in London hosted an ‘Inspiring Ireland’ 1916 Collection Day and Open Day which was attended by over 200 people. Organised in partnership with the Digital Repository of Ireland and Irish in Britain, it was the first ever Open Day held at the Embassy of Ireland in London and was funded through the Ireland 2016 Global and Diaspora Programme. In total, 17 contributors came from across the UK to participate in the event, and Inspiring Ireland collected and digitised over 40 unique objects for sharing in upcoming exhibitions, including medals, correspondence, political pamphlets, photographs and even a Celtic kilt pin worn by a member of a pipe band.
