Colum Kenny

Includes Colum Kenny’s work on three documentaries for RTÉ and personal correspondence with various individuals relating to topics such as the media, law and Irish history.

One of the series relates to Colum’s research for a documentary about the ‘Tailor and Ansty'. The Tailor and Ansty (husband and wife Timothy [‘the Tailor’] and Anastasia ['Ansty'] Buckley) were the subjects of a book by Eric Cross about their storytelling and home in Gougane Barra, County Cork, which became a hub for notable figures of the Cork arts scene in the 1930s and 1940s. The series includes letters from Eric Cross and friends of the Tailor and Ansty including Seán Ó Faoláin and Nancy McCarthy-Allitt.

Another series (C2/3/3) relates to connections between Colum Kenny’s house, 1 Herbert Terrace, Bray, County Wicklow, and two of its former residents: Cyril Cusack and Grace Watt (née Muggeridge). This series mainly consists of correspondence between Kenny, Cusack and Watt during the early 1990s in which they reminisce about living in the house, and discuss Cusack and Watt’s personal lives.

The final series (C2/3/4) consists of the original finding aid that was included with the collection when it was donated to DCU Library by Colum Kenny on 23 November 2011. It details the original arrangement and description of the collection and was created by Kenny.

Two of the sub-series in this sub-fonds relating to Colum’s work on RTÉ television series are currently closed for access in part or in whole.
