Fenning Collection

Most of the books in the late Fr Hugh Fenning’s office have been catalogued. Attention is now centred on his extensive collection of pamphlets, offprints, and booklets on Dominican, Franciscan, and Augustinian history.

Over the years, Fr Hugh had the material bound in volumes with his “H.F.” on the spines. The largest collection, the green volumes, relates to Irish Dominican material. Augustinian material was bound in red and Franciscan material in brown.

As a precaution and in light of HSE advice, the librarian is working from home.

The Fenning Collection

Ms Marie Jennings continues to catalogue the private library of the late Fr
Hugh Fenning, O.P., at St Mary’s Priory, Tallaght.
Weak and/or damaged books are tied with a soft cotton tape as a temporary preservation measure.
To avoid attaching adhesive labels to the spines of the older books, the call numbers are written on acid-free bookmarks which are then inserted into the books so as to stand proud when the books are shelved.
