In Collection: Liam O'Leary Archive
Description: Liam O’Leary (1910-1992) was a film maker, writer, film historian and archivist. Throughout his life he worked in the civil service in Dublin, the Abbey Theatre, the British Film Institute, RTÉ, and also formed the Dublin Little Guild Theatre and the Irish Film Society. Liam O’Leary also made films and television programmes, gave lectures, and wrote about Irish film. In 1976 he was asked to organise an exhibition in the Douglas Hyde Gallery in Trinity College Dublin on 80 years of Irish film for the Dublin Arts Festival; this was the official beginning of the Liam O’Leary Archive. The collection includes the vast research archive of Liam O’Leary; his research into Irish, European and international cinema and film, memorabilia, photographs, books, periodicals, and audio-visual materials. The collection also includes a lot of handwritten notes, photocopies and newspaper clippings. There are also distinct collections within the Archive, such as the Irish Film Society materials and Robert O'Doherty Collection.
