Culture Night fell on Friday 19th September this year.

A collection of genealogists from Eneclann, Ancestor Network and findmypast Ireland gathered in the National Library of Ireland to provide a free genealogy advisory service to all callers.

Although we’ve operated the genealogy service with our colleagues Francis Carroll and Christina McDonnell throughout the Summer months, there’s something magical about being in the Library after dark.

The evening was further enlivened by live music, poetry readings in the Joly Cafe, face-painting in the entrance hall, and literally thousands of families many with young children wafting around and enjoying what the Library had to offer.

The genealogy service on Culture Night ran from 5 pm to 10pm, with last questions answered by 10.25pm.

A big shout-out to my friends and colleagues that joined in the exuberance – Niall Cullen, Carmel Gilbride, John Hamrock, Hilary McDonagh and Stephen Peirce.

All of us would like to thank the staff of the National Library for including the genealogy service in their Culture Night offering.
