24 July-31 Aug

As we complete the recent local elections for 2019, it is timely to note that April 2019 marked the 120th Anniversary of the first local elections following the enactment of the Local Government (Ireland) Act, 1898 which provided the legislative basis for much of our present local government system. It is of particular significance that women were given the franchise, albeit a limited one, for the first time in Ireland in the 1899 elections. The exhibition notes the importance of the role of the Councillor and raises public awareness on the work and activities of local authorities throughout the country.

dlr LexIcon, 8 May-31 August

Nigel Curtin, dlr Local Studies Librarian, presents a short taster exhibition of promotional material held in the Local Studies Collections at dlr LexIcon. Fitting into that ‘grey’ literature of library holdings, these posters and pamphlets have recently been selected from the Local History collection for digitisation. This display highlights the importance of digitising such ephemeral material for posterity, capturing those moments in time, in addition to showcasing design trends, fashion and taste, so illustrative of social mores and local history.

This is the story of a man called John Cleary, who left Bray in 1915 to go to war and never returned, but it is also a story shared by many other young men from the area. John has no known grave, and no photograph of him exists. But he was never forgotten.
