An incredible piece of Irish History, an autograph book from Gormanstown Internment Camp during the Civil War, belonging to Patrick Cahill. It contains 49 pages of autographs, messages and drawings by fellow prisoners many who went on to become prominent people within the State. Among those who signed the book are future President Sean T O’Kelly, Oscar Traynor and well over 100 others. It’s fascinating looking up the names in the Bureau of Military History archives to see what each did in the War of Independence.
Many thanks to the sender.

A beautiful calendar created to mark the 50th Anniversary of The Easter Rising. Each month is beautifully illustrated and has a piece on The Rising, the lead up to it, The War of Independence and John F Kennedy at Arbour Hill. Each date carries an anniversary of what happened on that day. A really fantastic piece of History.
Many Thanks to the sender

Not Political but something I thought may be of interest. It’s a card delivered to each door in the Parish inviting residents to call into the local Roman Catholic church, with mass times, office hours, and contact details etc. Shows how times have changed.
Many thanks to the sender
