Letters of 1916 Transcriber Tales video by Seamus Callagy

As part of his coursework on the MA in Digital Humanities 2016-2017, Seamus Callagy created a video about Fidelma Carroll‘s work as a transcriber on the Letters of 1916 project.

On many occasions, Fidelma has been one of the top Letters of 1916 transcribers. Fidelma discovered the Letters of 1916 project in my local volunteering newsletter and very quickly became engrossed in the human story of everyday life revealed through the letters. Read more about Fidelma’s contribution to the project here.
