The Glucksman Library is pleased to launch its Advent Calendar for 2020.

Advent Calendar 2020 – Unique and Distinctive (


As we are all staying local this Christmas, this year’s advent calendar explores a variety of Munster localities, through the townland, city and county maps and sketches held at the Special Collections and Archives Department at UL. Drawing on townland maps and images from our archival collections, the calendar will take you on a virtual tour of Munster and may be just the ticket for you to consider and reflect upon your local place in these days of staying local and fan sa chóngar.


Please subscribe or check back every day in December to reveal an image from the extensive collections of archives and rare books in the Glucksman Library.
