2018 Calendars

From the 1990s, the Military Archives has been involved in the production of a calendar in cooperation with the designers and printing staff at the Defence Forces Printing Press (DFPP). Our calendars are designed to showcase our archives, promote our service and highlight special projects undertaken by the Military Archives. Our intended audience are the personnel who serve in the Defence Forces, both home and abroad, and we also keep a stock reserved for researchers who visit us. Our calendars are themed and filled with images and commentary; previous calendars included The Brother Allen collection (2017), 1916 Case studies – an exhibition (2016), Sports and the Defence Forces (2015), The Military Service Pensions collection (2014) and The Irish Volunteers to the Civil War (2005). This yearin recognition of the Defence Forces 40 year commitment to peacekeeping with UNIFIL, our 2018 calendar focuses on the history of the mission from 1978 to the present dayremembers those who died in service, and highlights the recording work carried out so far by the Military Archives Oral History Project (MAOHPS) which was launched in November 2016.
