The Ceann Comhairle, Seán Ó Fearghaíl, today launched the Treasures of the Oireachtas Library, a digital exhibition produced as part of the centenary of the First Dáil.

The Oireachtas Library invited guest curators, including political cartoonist Martyn Turner and former Governor of Mountjoy Prison John Lonergan, to explore the treasures in their collection and choose their favourites.

The Oireachtas Library has also produced an animated short film telling the history of the Oireachtas Library from 1922 to the present day.
