List of documents left in the writing desk of The O'Rahilly

List prepared by Manchán Magan. Edited by Mark Humphrys.

Here is a list of documents stored in The O’Rahilly’s old school desk, which he seems to have made, and carved his initials in ("M.J.R.") with a penknife. The documents relate to his father’s shop business and were left in the pub/shop when it was sold in 1898. They were stored in the desk by 3 generations of the Finucane family, until Michael Finucane leased the pub out in 2012 and gave the desk and documents into the trust of Manchán Magan.
