Marquess MacSwiney Papers

Papers of the Marquess MacSwiney of Mashanaglass presented to the Royal Irish Academy in his memory by his son, in February 1946.

The papers consist of the following:

  • PART 1: Material in preparation for a history of the Irish regiments on the Continent in the eighteenth century

  • PART 2: Material chiefly for a history of the Swiss Guard at the Vatican

  • PART 3: Collection of blocks, plates, photographs, drawings

  • PART 4: Printed works

Many of the transcripts are in French, Italian or Spanish, depending on the original archive at which MacSwiney accessed them.
