Neil Jordan's extensive archives and papers, which includes notes on the likes of 'Michael Collins', 'Interview With The Vampire', 'A Company Of Wolves' and many more, have been added to the National Library Of Ireland.

Jordan's personal correspondence with collaborators such as Sinead O'Connor - who starred in his adaptation of 'The Butcher Boy' - to research notes from Warner Bros. studio chiefs from 'Interview With The Vampire'  are now freely available to the public and for research purposes for film students in the future.

Speaking at the donation, Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht Josepha Madigan TD said that Jordan's donation was "unique and represents a significant item of Irish cultural heritage."

"It provides a fuller understanding of each of Neil's films and is an important insight into his creative process and practice in both film and literature," said Minister Madigan.
