Diary of Jerome Fahy,
|Main Creator:||Fahy, Jerome A. -1954|
Fahy records all his daily activities as a farmer and a county councillor. He refers occasionally to national events taking place, mentioning a honeymoon couple being forced to spend the night in a train carriage in Kingsbridge Station (later Heuston St.) because it was impossible to enter Dublin city during the Easter Rising; they then had to return home. Most of the diary entries, however, concern personal or local activities and news.
The 1916 diary is written in pencil in a small notebook without a cover; the tiny writing is sometimes difficult to decipher.
See MS 49,802/4, MS 49,826 and MS 42,235 for related material.
