The Limerick Film Archive was created to locate and acquire film, video and cinema material of Irish interest, with particular emphasis on items relating to the mid-west region. Since its inception, the archive has been successful in acquiring over 100 film titles, over 800 hours of video material and a large file on local and national cinemas. The archive also has the largest collection of data and stills on Irish film players in Ireland. The collection promises some rare sights of the city and county such as old street scenes, parades, sports items, important events (Shannon Scheme at Ardnacrusha) and Shannon Airport in days gone by. Creative Ireland funding will help leverage other sources of funding to begin the digitisation of this important collection.
