North Strand bombing

 

Madam – The North Strand bombing was a key event in Dublin’s history and the new book by Kevin C Kearns, (Weekend Review, October 17th), is to be welcomed most warmly, as a reminder of the importance of capturing recollections of participants through the medium of oral history. At present, Dublin City Library Archive has an active and ongoing oral history project in respect of the North Strand bombing which complements the work of Prof Kearns. The original tapes, accompanied by written transcripts, can be accessed through the www.northstrandbombing.wordpress.com website or in our reading room at Pearse Street library, where our collection of original photographs, newspapers and files relating to the North Strand bombing can also be read. We also welcome contact from Dubliners who may wish to share their memories of North Strand with us. – Yours, etc,
