Dublin City Library and Archive is extending its opening hours
From 23 January 2023 the Reading Room is now open to researchers by appointment on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10am to 4.30pm, including through lunchtime. Our study area is now open from 10:00am – 20:00 Monday to Thursday and 10am to 5pm on Fridays and Saturdays
This fourth volume in the very popular History on your Doorstep series returns to the approach taken in the first two books, in which the Historians in Residence contributed short pieces about the history, locations and people they had encountered in their work in the different areas administered by Dublin City Council.

Welcome back. Last week we took a break from researching your family history to announce the availability of www.findmypast.ie to Dublin City library card holders. This week I am glad to say that we have been granted permission by the National Archives of Ireland to use James Callan’s will in this blog.
