Conflagration - The Four Courts in Dublin during the Battle of Dublin 
1922, 30 June 
National Library of Ireland 
NLI Ref.: HOG57 
Curatorial comments by the National Library of Ireland (via Flickr, accessed: 16 May 2012)
The building had been taken over by Anti-Treaty forces on 14 April 1922. Bombarded by National Army forces on 28 and 29 June, a huge explosion of stored munitions on 30 June destroyed the Public Records Office, and with it a huge swathe of Irish cultural memory.
