|Grattan Street Stories: Memory of Place
|This collection focuses on a building on Grattan Street which has served as a Quaker Meeting House, a public Dispensary and as the Grattan Street Health Centre. The project was a collaboration between the CFP and the Cork North Community Work Department, Cork Kerry Community Healthcare, Health Services Executive HSE. The interviewees fall into two main groups: those who worked in the building and those who lived in the surrounding area and availed of the services provided in the building. This project follows on from the collaboration with the HSE in the “HSE Orthopaedic Hospital Oral History Project (d'Orthopaedic)”. There is a further connection between the two projects as many of the staff and services once provided in the Grattan Street Health Centre have now relocated to St. Mary's Health Campus (St Mary’s Primary Care Centre) Gurranabraher, the former site of the Orthopaedic Hospital. This topic of the relocation of services is also covered in some staff interviews. [corkfolklore.org]

|The information listed from this repository has been extracted from lists available in the archives. The lists were compiled by staff of the Northside Folklore Project and we are grateful for their assistance. It must be remembered that due to time constraints not all items in this repository were examined individually. At the time the Original Directory was compiled, The Northside Folklore Project contained: (1) 300 sound recordings; (2) 4000 photographs; (3) 35 video tapes. Some of the entries in the database offer examples of the material the archive holds, other entries provide details of collections added since 2000.
