2019: In July, the London Irish Library was renamed the O’Donovan Library after a pledge of £10,000 by O’Donovan Waste Disposal was made in honour of Denis Joseph O’Donovan.
We are very grateful for the continued support from the O’Donovan family and are delighted that they chose our Library to pledge in Mr O’Donovan’s honour.
2018: The O’Donovan Library reaches its current level of 7,200 books.
2015: Opening of the Library following a donation of books from the Foley family. This donation attracted the interest of visiting government ministers in putting a call out for further donations and support to publishers, libraries and politicians in Ireland.
2014: A book drive initiated in Ireland resulted in over 7,000 books being delivered pro-bono by An Post (Ireland’s postal service) to Camden Square. Fitting in with our redevelopment of the Kennedy Hall part of the Centre, the Library found a dedicated home here at the London Irish Centre. A team of volunteers worked closely with our team on sorting, cataloguing, and shelving the books in time for the official launch.
