We hope in the months and years ahead to extend the small collection of posters and images already in our possession. The idea is to build a visual library from as many organisations and groups and as wide a period of time as is possible.

Posters are often the most visible aspect of left activity in the state - and in certain instances the primary means by which most citizens would interact with left formations and parties - and therefore an area suitable for inclusion in the Archive.

Bar a tiny handful we do not intend to post up election posters - you’ll find those at the Irish Election Literature collection, but we do welcome campaign or non-electoral promotional posters and any similar visual imagery.

So, if you think you have materials from the left appropriate for the Archive please don’t hesitate to send us a photograph of them - or the real thing!
