People can browse some of the historic treasures of the Oireachtas Library with the launch of a new online exhibition.

Some of the the unusual items of national significance include historical monographs, maps, letters, cartoons, prints and periodicals.

As part of the Dail 100 celebrations The Oireachtas Library invited guest curators to explore the collection and choose their favourites.

Ceann Comhairle of Dáil Éireann, Seán Ó Fearghaíl is one of the curators and launched the exhibition this morning.

He said: “I am delighted that the Houses of the Oireachtas has opened up our collections to the broadest audience possible, the fact that these materials are also available digitally, will show the breadth and diversity of our Special Collections content.”

It's hoped the archive which dates back to the 16th century will be one of the lasting legacies of the Dail Centenary celebrations
