The Irish Story Is Seeking Contributors
Calling historians and writers of Irish history, The Irish Story is interested in adding new writers to our roster of contributors to the site. All topics are of interest but we'd especially like to add to our Ancient and Medieval selections which are currently less well populated than we'd like. The Editors editor[at] |  jdorney66[at]

Fr. Creagh And The Jews Of Limerick

The Limerick City Library Local Studies Team keep a Twitter account that tracks what life was like in Limerick 100 years ago, called Limerick1912. Today they shared the story of Fr. Creagh And The Jews of Limerick and they kindly created a storify embed of the tweets so we could show the whole piece in one go on The Irish Story.

The team says they were shocked when they saw, ‘the adverts for P.Toohey in the 1912 local papers, they are on the front of the Leader almost every week … it just shows how important it is to look beyond the accepted narrative, and track down the facts of the matter.’
