Records of Birr Business & Professional Women’s Association

  • IE OCL P47
  • Fonds
  • 1967 - 1981

Two minute books, a lecture record book, and a postage book for the association.

The minute books, dating from 1967 when the group was formed, contain a record of committee meetings held on a monthly basis, until its winding down in 1982 due to dwindling numbers and loss of subscriptions. They detail the finances of the association and plans for annual lecture programmes, including speakers and titles of papers. Also includes newspaper cuttings and some loose correspondence relating to national and international women's issues.

The lecture record book contains details and sometimes a synopsis of each lecture delivered to the association by its invited speakers, and also contains newspaper cuttings describing the lecture and its attendance. This book was also used to record meetings of the National Federation of Business and Professional Women.

The postage book records financial outlay for postage and stationary from 1968-1979.

Records of Edenderry Union

  • IE OCL BG85

  • 1879 - 1919

Only 10 minute books survive as records of Edenderry Union covering the years 1879-1919, with many large gaps. There are no extant workhouse registers, registers of deaths, workhouse ledgers, outdoor relief registers, or registers of accounts.

A further known minute book from 1895, which was rescued from the workhouse following its demolition in 1976 and is now in private hands, has been transcribed by Dr Ciaran Reilly in an article ‘The minute book of Edenderry Poor Law Union, 1895’ in Offaly Heritage, Vol. 7 (Tullamore, 2013)

The minutes contain the proceedings of the meetings of the boards of guardians and contain reports from the clerk of the union, the master of the workhouse, the sanitary officers and others.
