I'm trying to find any reports of an industrial accident in limerick which resulted in a hand/arm amputation. Not sure of year but I do have a name.
Anyone have access to a newspaper database and feeling generous
If you've a name you want to post I'll have a look see.
Yes and Yes
Patrick Kelly Limerick. 1903-1979
The company might be irish wire products limerick.
Just checking is this correct?
76 years is a very broad time frame for one of the most common names in Ireland.
Tell me about it...
I'm trying to get more information alright
And why those years?
To make a good search I could do with more info - some context.
three four Limerick men injured at work losing arms, but no Patrick Kelly.
ya thats his entire lifespan...
i'm waiting on more information to narrow it down......
Trying to chase down this story is a bit difficult....
This injury occurred prior to 1954
You'd be surprised how many ghastly accidents happened in Limerick. In more recent times it hasn't been common for papers to name people who didn't die, but there do seem to be regular accounts of workplace accidents being investigated. I will have another look later.
