About the Project
The 1641 Depositions (Trinity College Dublin, MSS 809-841) are witness testimonies mainly by Protestants, but also by some Catholics, from all social backgrounds, concerning their experiences of the 1641 Irish rebellion. The 1641 Depositions Project aimed to conserve, digitise, transcribe and make the depositions available online. The project began in 2007 and finished in September 2010. The project was funded by the AHRC in the UK and the IRCHSS in Ireland, costing over €1 million.

Eneclann’s Role
Eneclann played a central role in planning and managing the technical side of the project from its inception. We imaged over 19,000 manuscript pages of original testimonials contained in 31 volumes to exacting preservation standards, and played an important role in developing the technical meta-data underlying the transcription of the material.
