TITLE

My Granny’s Autograph Book – Connecting Women Through Generations

Story about this item

I always remember this autograph book being in the family. It always impressed as it had DeValera’s signature. It was common in the time of internment for men to keep signature books. The book mostly contains signatures and drawings from Tintown No 3 camp which was located on The Curragh. It also contains signatures from those interned in Maryborough, Portlaoise Prison. It means alot to me because it belonged to Granny who had a brother who had been interned. It passed to my brother and now I have it. When I got the book first I got autographes from my friends, my Mum had done the same with her friends. So the autographes are a mix of those significant from a historical perspective and those which are very personal.
