Clerkin Family // County Monaghan

Contributed by Eugene and Shirley Clerkin

Collection of Clerkin family photographs from Monaghan County.

The collection includes photographs of Eugene’s mother Eva from her time spent in England working as a nurse, photographs of daily life on the family farm, informal family get-togethers and events such as weddings, and photographs sent home by relatives from America.

Eugene himself is a gifted amateur photographer. We are currently archiving his extensive colour slide collection which dates from the 1960s.
