For the first time, The Times brings together a unique collection of obituaries of Ireland's most distinguished individuals from the last two centuries.

James Joyce
Lady Gregory
Thomas Moore
Samuel Beckett
Charles Parnell
Michael Collins
Countess Markievicz
Eamon de Valera
George Best

The obituaries are reproduced substantially as they were printed at the time. Dubliner, Charles Lysaght, long-time contributor of Irish obituaries to The Times, has selected the subjects for inclusion in consultation with Ian Brunskill, the newspaper’s obituaries editor.
