In 2011, The Collins Press published Serving a City – The Story of Cork’s English Market by Diarmuid Ó Drisceoil and Donal Ó Drisceoil. This lavishly illustrated book explores the unique undercover market – one of Cork City’s top attractions – from its beginnings in the late 18th century to the current day, telling the story of the City in the process. It is available in all good bookshops.
As part of their research, the authors created a list of the stallholders who have worked in the market since 1845 and this list is published in a dedicated section of the book. If your ancestors were in the meat, fish or vegetable trades, you may well find them included.
The Collins Press has agreed to make this section – Stallholders 1845–2005 – available in pdf format (4Mb) to members of the Irish Genealogical Research Society on the strict understanding that these pages are not to be printed or reproduced elsewhere without their written agreement.
