Craig, Dublin 1660-1860. Craig, Maurice. Dublin 1660-1860. Dublin, Allen Figgis Ltd., 1980. 14.5 cm x 21 cm. XXI, 361 pages. Original softcover. Excellent condition with minor signs of external wear. Back-cover slightly dirty. Inscription by preowner.

″Craig was at the forefront of the conservation movement, and his collection of photographs from the 1940s and 1950s shows an Ireland in which a horse-and-cart was still a key mode of transport. The pictures depict parts of Dublin that are no longer there, including photographs of Gardiner Street before many of its period buildings were demolished and on Longford Street, near Aungier Street in Dublin 8, the last pair of curved ‘Dutch-billy’ gabled buildings in Dublin which were demolished in about 1960.

“In Ireland at the time you expected a large rumpus about this or that, but there was no rumpus about things that were quietly taken down. Regarding Longford Street, I put my case to the official channels and was assured that they would look after them but they didn’t. In the meantime I had taken photographs of them and made a sketch survey.”

In 1952 he wrote Dublin 1660-1860, the book that began his recording of the city’s history and its important buildings. “I wrote the book under contract. The publishers did the normal thing that publishers do if you go to them with an idea. They say: ‘Young man if you write about the following subject we will publish it.’ They wanted a book on Dublin and I am sure they thought they would get the usual stuff about snuff boxes and hoop skirts. But I was interested in architecture and researched it by keeping my eyes open and going around on my feet.”” (Irish Times)

Culloty, Nora Herlihy: Irish Credit Union Pioneer. Culloty, A.T. Nora Herlihy: Irish Credit Union Pioneer. Dublin, Irish League of Credit Unions, 1990. 14.5 cm x 21 cm. XVI, 151 pages. Original softcover. Excellent condition with only very minor signs of external wear.

″Nora Herlihy was a student of the Liberal Arts Extramural Course at University College Dublin. There she met social economics student Tomas O’Hogain who invited her to a December 1953 meeting with Seamus MacEoin about the co-operative model. In March 1954 she and O’Hogain founded the Dublin Central Co-operative Society with the goal of reducing unemployment and emigration through the formation of worker co-operatives. The United States’ Credit Union National Association (CUNA) asked Herlihy to form a subcommittee to examine how the credit union model could be put to use in Ireland. With Sean Forde and O’Hogain she formed the Credit Union Extension Service. In 1957, Minister for Industry and Commerce Seán Lemass appointed Herlihy to a legislative advisory committee on non-agricultural co-operatives.[1] The first two Irish credit unions were formed under Herlihy’s influence in 1958 and she promoted credit unions throughout Ireland. She was instrumental in the formation of the Civil Service Credit Union and the Irish League of Credit Unions,[1] which was founded in 1960 and run from the living room of her Dublin house. She served as unpaid secretary for the organisation, teaching full-time and funding the movement’s development with her earnings.[1][2] In 1963 the board of the Credit Union League of Ireland recognized her as having made the greatest individual contribution to the Irish credit union movement. Her efforts aided the passage of the 1966 Credit Union Act and she stood beside President Éamon de Valera as he signed the act into law.” (Wikipedia)

″The author Br. A.T. Culloty is a native of Ballydesmond. He has been involved in education at different levels in Ireland as well as working with young Irish immigants in London. His interest in local history and the development of local communities led him to publish a history of Ballydesmond in 1986” (publisher).
