    Abstract

    On Friday 13th November 2015, as part of the Library Ireland Week Job Swop initiative, I spent a very pleasant and interesting day with Kildare Library and Arts Services - Local Studies Section in Newbridge. I was met by Mario Corrigan, the local studies librarian and later by James Durney Writer in Residence for 2015/16. James’ book Foremost and ready: Kildare and the 1916 Rising was launched in Naas Town Hall on the 20th November 2015. Mario invited me to view the Teresa Brayton Archive which was lent to Maynooth University in 2014 to mount an exhibition on local poet and nationalist Teresa Brayton. Later in the morning pupils from the local school attended a talk by Mario on their topics for Leaving Cert history. Mario and James advised them on the use of primary sources and also how to narrow the focus of their projects.
