The Treaty 1921: Records from the Archives exhibition opened last night at the Wicklow Library & Archives, where it will stay until the 17 May. This follows a three-month exhibition at Dublin Castle where the Anglo-Irish Treaty went on public display for the first time. The exhibition marks the centenary of the signing of the Anglo-Irish Treaty.
