The Dictionary of Irish Biography is now available free to schools (through the Schools Broadband Network). The Biography database contains over 10,000 biographical articles detailing the lives and careers of Irish people who have been involved in all fields of endeavour, including politics, law, religion, literature, journalism, architecture, painting, music, the stage, science, medicine, engineering, entertainment and sport.
This is a valuable resource for anyone considering the biography of a historical figure for their Research Project.
The link below will bring you to the database but can only be accessed through your school if the school uses the Schools Broadband Network.
