Peter Moloney is a Project Manager based in London. Mr Moloney started collecting when he was aged 15 and since then the collection has amassed to one of the largest private collections of memorabilia charting the history of Ireland and the Troubles.

The collection includes political propaganda, pamphlets and posters, as well as over 14,000 images of murals captured over the past 40years in Northern Ireland Mr Moloney was born in Buncrana Co. Donegal and later moved to Derry and then to London.

He has lectured widely in the UK, Europe and the US on the Northern Ireland Troubles. Every year he travels to Ireland at least twice to collect more items, both loyalist and republican, to add to his collection. His work carries its own risk as neither community are sure what side he is on and on many occasions Mr Moloney has been in very scary and dangerous situations.

Mr Moloney continues to lecture and collect. Watch the video below in which Peter talks about his collection.

A catalogue for the Peter Moloney collection is available to view at the Tower Museum on request.
