Teacher of Design advertised

Following the resignation on 12 December 1921 of Miss Sarah A. Reynolds (Teacher of Design), who had accepted a post at the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art, the following advertisement appeared in the Evening Echo by F.B. Giltinan, Secretary:

Art Teacher Wanted

In his appointment as Secretary of the City Technical Education Committee, Francis B. Giltinan became the first secretary of the Gibson Bequest Committee (established 1920), for which he received an annual income of £40. In 1930, he became the first Chief Executive Officer of the Cork Vocational Educational Committee when schools, such as Cork School of Art which were previously under the control of the South Kensington Schools, became under direct State control.

The portrait of this much respected man was created posthumously by Seán O’Sullivan RHA. In Giltinan’s obituary (Cork Examiner, 24 October 1938) it was observed that ‘Cork was immeasurably poorer (by his death) and the news has already created the deepest feeling of sorrow amongst all classes in the city…...It is no exaggeration to say that the late Mr Giltinan was one of the greatest forces in educational spheres and the success of vocational training in Cork was to a large extent due to his untiring efforts’.

The Provisional Irish Free State Government takes possession of Dublin Castle.

‘Mr Michael Collins, who motored up from Granard, where he had been visiting his future bride, Miss Kiernan, of that town, went to Dublin Castle accompanied by the other members of the Provisional Government, and was handed over the building by Lord Fitz-Alan on behalf of the British Government.

There was no ceremony about the transfer. All was over in a few minutes. But in those few moments the rule of Dublin Castle came to an end…The following official statement was issued at the Mansion House:-‘The members of Rialtas Sealadach na hÉireann [Provisional Government of Ireland] received surrender of Dublin Castle at 1.45pm today. It is now in the hands of the Irish nation.

For the next few days the functions of the existing Department of that institution will be continued without in any way prejudicing future action. Members of the Rialtas Sealadach na hÉireann proceed to London immediately to meet the British Cabinet Committee to arrange for the various details of handing over…’

(Anglo-Celt Newspaper, 21 January 1921)
