If you ever wondered who walked through the rooms of your house in the past, you may be interested in a Timeline House History. A Timeline House History makes a wonderful gift for the new owner of an old house or might complement the restoration of an old building, adding context to its history and identifying the previous occupiers. Businesses such as hotels and restaurants can use our House History to tell their guests about the history of building, adding depth and historical context to their visit.
Timeline director Nicola Morris presents a short history segment in each programme. Timeline offer a number of house history research services. Our team of researchers, historians and genealogists will trace the history of the building from the date of its construction to the mid 20th century to establish when and why the house was built and who lived there during its lifetime. A Timeline House History will include a detailed history of the building, biographical details on the residents of the house, the very people who walked through your rooms before you, as well as historical context, looking at local events around the site of the building that may have had an impact on the occupiers.
Our research is presented in a narrative history of the building, its occupiers and the surrounding area with images from maps, documents and photographs if found. You will receive a bound hard copy of the report as well as a digital copy. To-date we have undertaken dozens of histories ranging from country mansions, hotels, hunting lodges and gate houses to 19th century mills and factories. Postgraduate students must also attach a letter of support from their supervisor confirming their student status and topic of research. The travel grant cannot be used to support conference attendance without presentation.

On 7 October Mrs Bridget Maguire, a street trader from Cabra, a working-class suburb of Dublin, gave birth to her twentieth child in the Rotunda maternity hospital. The birth of baby Thomas was reported in many newspapers not due to his myriad siblings, but because at the age of fifty-one, his mother was the oldest woman to give birth in the Rotunda since records began. Under section 17 of the Criminal Law Amendment Act, , the import, sale and advertisement of artificial contraception was banned in Ireland.
Additionally, the production, sale, and distribution of any publication advocating contraception was outlawed under section 16 of the Censorship of Publications Act, Consequently, many Irish people were without the necessary knowledge with which to plan their families. While a rise in the number of marriages and births occurred from about , the average family size nonetheless began to decrease for the first time, as did the age at which couples tended to marry.
The encyclical also stated that Catholic obstetricians should make themselves fully proficient in this method. Drawing on a range of medical and diocesan sources, as well as diverse material from the news media, my essay explores how family planning developed in Dublin from It is demonstrated that whilst the medical and social work community, as well as their patients, began to exhibit a more liberal shift in views on the issue of artificial birth control, the Catholic hierarchy was compelled to re-promote official teaching on the subject after the publication of Humanae Vitae. Two of the three largest maternity hospitals in Dublin operated with a Catholic ethos, and the Archbishop of Dublin, John Charles McQuaid, was particularly mindful of how medics operated within these hospitals with regard to birth control.
Consequently, the encyclical created new difficulties for medical professionals working in Catholic maternity hospitals who wished to develop more sophisticated programmes of family planning therein. Prescription of the contraceptive pill, which had occurred on a case-by-case basis, was no longer possible in these hospitals.
Even prior to the encyclical, the issue of access to artificial birth control was viewed increasingly by many medical and social care professionals — as well as many of their patients — as a private issue of health and welfare, rather than a moral problem. Additionally, my essay demonstrates that family planning was a class issue. As the annual reports of the maternity hospitals demonstrated repeatedly during this period, the health and welfare of working-class women — those who were least likely to access contraception — often suffered greatly as a result of multiple births.
Cronin and Jeffrey Weeks provided four stimulating keynote lectures. Bolger concluded that upper-class Irish women were afforded flexibility in their mothering abilities as their decision to breastfeed was often based upon personal choices. Bennett concludes that the maternal body was a source of concern for the authorities but also a vehicle for resistance on the part of the prisoner as it could act as a barrier to discipline.
These papers and the many others presented resonated quite strongly with current debates and events in Irish society today. The paper focused on the hitherto ignored activities of provincial gay and lesbian activists in s Galway. By focusing on Galway, my paper made two key arguments. Firstly, it sought to demonstrate the extent to which lesbian women were not passive agents in the efforts to improve the situation of Irish gay and lesbian citizens pre and decriminalisation of sexual activity between males.
