North Wall Quay, the 11th April 1921. It could have been any other day on the Dublin Docks as hundreds of dockers, quay laborer's, carters and seamen made their way to work. Even the military guard at the front door of the London Northwestern Railway Hotel was becoming a familiar figure. But despite appearances, this was anything but a normal day. At 8.00 am a number of armed men emerged from the throng of workers and approached the Hotel building, an action which signaled the start of the most audacious attack carried out against the British Crown Forces this area had ever witnessed. But the story of the LNWR Hotel did not begin with this gun battle - rather it was just one chapter in a Docklands tale of cross channel tourism, a gateway to the country, a place of luxurious surroundings , with its origins in an abandoned plans plans for a cattle market. On the centenary of this major ambush during the War of Independence , the East Wall History Group is proud to release this documentary to mark the occasion , which includes details of not only of the attack on the LNWR Hotel but also places the building in its correct context as a major feature in the story of Dublin Port. A feature by film-makers Louis Maxwell and Conor Forkin. Supported by the Dublin City Council Decade of Commemorations Fund for Communities. #lovedublinhistory

A podcast series from The Heritage Council to raise awareness and understanding of key issues now confronting our historic town centres. Protecting the heritage of our historic town centres has never been more important given the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic. The traditional economic heartbeat of such places is under serious threat. Small and medium sized businesses are especially vulnerable. From the coffee shop on the corner, to brand name retail businesses, there is an air of uncertainty. Challenges of Covid have placed unprecedented pressures on traditional urban areas because of the effects of lockdown and other restraints. Yet the heart of many of our Town Centres contain layers of history and heritage. Town squares, streets, laneways, traditional and sometimes landmark buildings, and streetscapes that have survived the rigors of centuries, are vital for our historical memory and sense of place. In a landmark move, the Heritage Council has now launched its first ever podcast series. ‘Putting Town Centres First’ provides timely insights, not least the multilayered challenges posed by Covid-19. The new series aims to raise awareness and understanding of key issues now confronting our historic town centres. It highlights the overwhelming need for innovative and collaborative responses and solutions. The new podcast series is part of the innovative Collaborative Town Centre Health Check Programme (CTCHC). #virtuallyirish #virtuallyirishcommunity

Our story We are Jane and Maurice O’Keeffe, based in Tralee, Co Kerry. In 1982, we became the third generation of O’Keeffe's to open an antiques business, and for two decades we loved trading in old furniture, ceramics and art. During this time, we discovered a particular passion for uncovering Irish history that would otherwise remain untold. The unique Irish voice, in all its depth, breadth and intonation is a very precious resource. In our rapidly changing world of instant communication, the local accent as well as personal memories, stories and ideas become threatened, and once lost, cannot be reinstated. We set up Irish Life and Lore in 1990 and today, over 3,000 voices are archived, each of them recounting personal memories, historical events and the essence of old Ireland through Irish Life and Lore’s audio recordings , books and Oral History Collections. Mission statement Irish Life and Lore’s mission is to enrich public understanding of our shared past through oral history; to record unique life and social histories, document the central historical events and memories of our times, to inform education, create awareness and bolster research across the disciplines.
