Dublin Cattle Market – A workplace that has disappeared

Historians in Residence Work and the availability of it is one of the features of human society that can be very contradictory in nature but has a huge impact, on the individual, on the community and on the shape of the physical environment in which they are situated. Dublin has expanded enormously since the beginning of the 20th century and many of the industries that were providing employment at that time have changed; either disappearing altogether or adapting to technological and other developments in the intervening century.

The Camino Voyage Film Screening

Camino Voyage stillThursday 16 May at 5.30pm at Pearse Street Library

Join us for a free special screening of The Camino Voyage (2018), with an introduction by the film's director Dónal Ó Céilleachair, to celebrate Dublin Boat Rally 2019.

"It takes some class of determination to row all the way from Ireland to Santiago de Compostela in Northern Spain. It takes more to do so in a traditional naomhóg. Yet four men, poet Sheehy, artist Holden, musician Begley, and stonemason Moriarity, set out to do just that in three gruelling yearly stages, beginning in 2014. Hansard joined them later. O'Céilleachair's film records the journey with care and grace. You'll feel uplifted and a little exhausted by the close. " (The Irish Times, 23/11/18)
