Dun Laoghaire Maritime Museum

Post by bforsyth » Sun Jan 03, 2010 2:53 pm

It seems the Maritime Museum will not be open for at least another year or at least untill all the renovation work has been carrried out and completed. However, I would like to find out if the museum holds any records on the construction of piers particularly records dealing with diving. Can anyone help?

It would be nice if the museum could find room for some of the reminders of old DunLaoghaire such as the three balls which hung outside the pawnbrokers ,Mc Manus and Findlaters clock etc . There must be lots of other relics around to give the younger generations an insight in to the towns past, compared to the present.

St Nicholas is directly behind Mariners on Adelaide Street. I think it's a school now?

The museum will reopen this year

but it will reopen

yes - its a school -
they got the land, right up to the church wall from the CoI
the main entrance to the church - when it was a church - was on that side

Did anyone see the photo exhibition including some old Dominican Convent pictures, mostly of the nuns in the early part of the 1900s, could be wrong about the timing, but it was sometime roughly 12 years ago?

Museum News:
Midland Construction have just commenced phase three of the restoration. Doyles who did a very nice job with phase two are in receivership. Uner the direction of Felim Dunne. Midland will install central heating, wheelchair access, plumbing (toilets), entrance lobby, emergency lighting, some carpentry and other works. Opening looks like June, but could be earlier.
Two new stained glass windows have been installed, paid for by the harbour company.

I found some photos of the interior of Mariners when clearing out stuff belonging to my son.
They were taken about 12/15 years ago when he was doing a school project.
Anyone interested in me uploading them, or have you all got pics of the interior?
