Description

Title: Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) Records from 1654 to present day.

The Quakers have been in Ireland since 1654. In this workshop Noel Jenkins provides an introduction to their records and beliefs, and discusses other records that have been generated from these original documents. In particular, those records that document their involvement in and contribution to Irish society. Of particular interest are the records of the Liberty Creche opened in 1830; the Claremount Institute opened in 1824; Cork Penny Dinners; Bloomfield Hospital, and the Quaker schools around Ireland.

The workshop concludes with a tour of the Library and Strong Room including viewing Quaker memorabilia.

There will be 6 computers available to explore the Mega Database, which includes an overview of everything in the building.
We will provide tea and coffee at lunchtime, so people are requested to bring some lunch.

Numbers are strictly limited, and anyone who would like to attend this free workshop should apply for a ticket by writing toworkshop@eneclann.ie
Tickets will be assigned on a first come basis.
