Heritage Awards 2016

 

Jimmy Carthy, Alan Martin and Audrey MacCready at the Heritage Awards for 2106. We were all in great spirits that day in the Royal College of Physicians building at Number 6 Kildare Street.

Alan Martin had just being presented with his award as a runner up in the Heritage Heroes category. To our great shock and dismay Jimmy Carthy passed away a few days later. Jimmy was the inspiration for the Dublin Dockworkers Preservation Society and one of the founding members.  

The Heritage Awards for 2016 were held at Number 6 Kildare Street. This is the home of the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland. A wonderful building with a long heritage of it's own.

The Dublin Dock Workers Preservation Society were awarded a runner up prize in the Heritage Heroes section. This was presented by Acting chair of the Heritage Council Michael Parsons with Minister Heather Humphreys.  I was honoured and delighted to accept the award on behalf of the society and all the volunteers who have helped over the years.

The awards were held on the 22nd of February 2017. Alan Martin, Jimmy Carthy , Audrey MacCready and Eoghan Martin attended on behalf of the society.

Coddle at the N.C.A.D


A great evening of traditional Dublin coddle hosted by the N.C.A.D in Thomas Street. Starters were crisp sandwiches with Guinness or tea and coffee, then the lovely coddle with traditional bread followed by Guinness cakes. Temper-mental miss elayneous, seen here with Declan Byrne entertained her loyal bodhrán and unique vocals.

This event was organised by Bernadette Larkin on behalf of the Dublin Culture Connect project as part of their Around the Table series of events.  This was a real special evening bringing together communities from Dublin's docklands to Moore street over a traditional fare. Many thanks to Bernadette and her team and to N.C.A.D for their warm hospitality.

The Ferry man


The Liffey Ferry on the river again.

Organised by Dublin Culture Connect Project the last two trips on the ferry in its current format were run. Former dock workers and guests were invited. The port seemed very empty compared to when we worked there. Ships are in and out in a matter of hours rather than the 3 days to a week that they used to take.

We also see a leaflet and news paper clipping from the time and some of the last corporation workers to operate the ferry commercially.
