“50 FRANCIS STREET”

Printer-friendly version

Wednesday 3 October at 6:30pm in Raheny Library. This event is now fully booked.

Raheny Heritage Society presents “50 FRANCIS STREET” with Suzanne Behan. From religious processions and Dublin traditions, to when women drank in the snug and the ‘good suit’ came in and out of the pawn shop, photographer John Walsh’s collection of original photographs provides a fascinating social history and celebration of people and places.

Suzanne Behan is the granddaughter of John Walsh otherwise known as the 50 Francis Street Photographer. A keen photographer herself she is in the process of curating the thousands of photographs of Dublin and Ireland which her grandfather took throughout his career, working from his Shop on Francis Street. The event is free. Booking is required.
