What is the Name Book?

The ‘Name Book’ has records for Dublin Port workers dating from 1906 to 1914. It contains information on the dates employees started and finished work with Dublin Port, their occupation and any noteworthy events or occupation changes that occurred during their time of employment at the Port.

For each entry there is a corresponding image of the page in the ‘Name Book’ where the entry was written. This can be viewed and downloaded as a pdf on the search results page. As these entries were handwritten, some entries are illegible so any corrections or suggestions are welcomed and can be submitted here where they will be reviewed and updated if necessary.
