Hear the little-known story of the discovery, salvage and restoration of asylum records from the Grangegorman site.

These records document the lives and routines of the asylum from 1814. Why are these records so important? How can they challenge the historical stigma of mental illness in Ireland? How were they located, salvaged and restored? Where are they now? Find out all of this and more by attending our panel discussion on Culture Night 2020.

Register now and we will contact you by email in the days leading up to the live premiere with details on how you can 'attend' this discussion and engage in conversation around the historic Grangegorman archive.
