Pat and Donal have been working away on the digitisation project and we’re delighted to add the Cunningham collection of North Tipperary trade ephemera to our digital archive.
Donated with kind generosity by Dr George Cunningham, Roscrea. We have a large section relating to John Hodgins and Son nurseries in Cloughjordan. The range of plants and seeds which he provided to his clients, the price lists and the nature of the whole business give a fascinating insight into the social and rural life of not only Cloughjordan but much of Ireland at this time.
Also part of the collection of material are a large selection of bill heads and receipts from various businesses in the towns and villages of North Tipperary in the late 19th and 20th century.
