Letter Henry L Tivy to Lady Ardilaun 11th August 1914 re Effect of World War 1 in Cork, Compulsory Billeting of Troops in Blackrock, Castletownbere Naval Station, Bank Run, Blockade of Bandon Railway.
Lady Adrilaun is probably one of the Banty Whites married to a Guinness.
The Tivys owned the Cork Constitution and founded the Rugby Club of the same name. The family may still own the newspaper distribution business ‘ Newsspread’

That’s a fascinating piece!! I’m doing some work on Olive Ardilaun at the moment, may I ask where the letter is an if there are any more connected with Lady Ardilaun?
