I am looking for some help establishing family history for my maternal grandmothers guest house at 30 North Frederick Street, Dublin 1. It was called "An Stad" for many years and "McCarthy's" before that.
It was an IRA safehouse during the war of independence. Michael Collins stayed there on many occasions. It was owned for a time by Cathal McGarvey, author of "Star of the county Down" and it became my grandmothers house in 1937.
I am looking for more information if anyone who lived in the area knows of such information, or at least knows of places where I can search to find such information.
