Tenants Wanted for Shared Office at Carnegie Facility

Old library gang
A work gang with Mick Allen and Gene McGillicuddy working on one of the Carnegie Library’s several reincarnations. If anyone knows the names of the others in the photograph it would be great to complete the caption.

If they didn’t do another stroke in the course of their existence, Castleisland Chamber Alliance members would be entitled to take a bow for restoring pride and purpose to one of the town’s grand, old buildings.

There are generations of Castleislanders grateful to the building and what it held in terms of the role it played in education gap filling.

It’s now bristling on the outside and the inside has been tastefully restored to a new lease of colourful life.

Memories Came Flooding

I called in today on foot of getting the update below from the chamber alliance.

Memories came flooding back of the quietness of the place from the top of the massive newel posted stairs to the late Kitty Downey’s squared off, floor centre reception area with its ‘In’ and ‘Out’ sides. There was a chair on the top landing and I’m sure it’s the one that used to be tucked in under the little table beneath the ‘For Reference Only’ shelves on the eastern side of the library.
