A new website has been launched that will tell the story of the events of Irish life a century ago.

The Century Ireland project is an online historical newspaper, which charts news events from the time of the Home Rule debate to the Civil War, from 1912-1923.

Alongside news reports from the time, the site will also feature photographs and academic research.

There will also be a daily blog and a Twitter feed.

Century Ireland is supported by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.

It is a partnership between RTÉ, Boston College and national cultural institutions.
