Journal of a Young Drogheda Lawyer & Member of The Rowing Club Co. Louth: Manuscript: A Notebook, 21 x 17 cm, headed: ''The Journal Scribblings of Laurence J. Branigan, youngest son of a far better man of the same name, of 18 Shop Street, Drogheda, Co. Louth, inscribed this 24th day of May 1914.'' Continues to 16 Sept 1922, with postscript dated 18 Dec 1939. 80 pp, the rest blank. In 1914 Branigan was an 18-year-old law student; he subsequently graduated as a solicitor (there is still a law firm of Phelan Branigan in Drogheda). The journal contains some family news, verses are interspersed from time to time, and there is much about the Drogheda Rowing Club, including a picture postcard showing the club's crew, stroked by the author, winning the Regatta of 1914.
