The business continues today, but since 1992, it operates only as a optometry practice.

PATRICK O'DONNELL

Dublin


An example of the work of Patrick O'Donnell, a student at the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art in 1916:

This may be Patrick Alphonsus O'Donnell, who was recorded in the 1911 Irish Census as a 16-year-old Jeweller's apprentice. And also may be the Patrick O'Donnell noted as an apprentice with Hopkins & Hopkins and later with John Miller.

ANDREW BUCHANAN Jnr.

71, Church Street, Ballymena, Co. Antrim


Noted as a Silversmith and Jeweller of Ralphena, Broughshane Road, Ballymena, Co. Antrim and a member of the Buchanan Society in 1923.

Andrew Buchanan jnr. was the son of Andrew Buchanan, a Watchmaker and Jeweller of Shirley, Bothwell Road, Hamilton, Scotland.

Buchanan, A., Watchmaker and Jeweller, is recorded at 71, Church Street, Ballymena, in The Belfast and Ulster Towns Directory for 1910.

Perhaps to be identified with James Buchanan, Watchmaker, of 27, Wellington Street, Ballymena (The Belfast and Ulster Towns Directory for 1910).

The 1901 Irish Census records Andrew Buchanan as a 37-year-old, Co. Antrim born Watchmaker. He is married to 31-year-old, Co. Antrim born, Ellen. The couple reside at 64, Church Street, Ballymena, recorded in the census as a shop and dwelling, along with their four children, Walter, 10, James, 8, Andrew, 5, and Matilda, 3-years of age. The family's religion was recorded as Brethren.

The 1911 Irish Census notes that Andrew Buchanan, now aged 47, and his family have removed to 20, Broughshane Road, Ballymena, recorded in the census as a private dwelling. The Children are recorded as Andrew, 15, Mildred, 13, Ellen, 9, and Winiefred, 7-years-of-age. The family's religion was recorded as 'Christian Religion'. The census records that Andrew and Ellen had been married for 20 years, had 7 children, of whom 6 were living.

JAMES TUITE

Mullingar, County Westmeath


............Mr Forster was very busy arresting and releasing suspects on the reports of magistrates and police. His arrest of Mullett enraged the Invincibles, who were now continually lying in wait for him as he moved to and fro. On the day of the Skipper's Alley murder he released Mr James Tuite, chairman of the Mullingar Town Commissioners, after nine months' imprisonment as a suspect. I got to know Mr Tuite very well, when he became a member of Parnell's parliamentary party in 1886. He was a jeweller and watchmaker, a strong temperance advocate, and a most respectable man. On the night of Tuite's release, the houses of two farmers at Feakle, in county Limerick, named McNamara and Moroney, who had paid their rents, were visited by moonlighters. McNamara was compelled to apologise on his knees, while rifles were discharged over his head. Moroney was deliberately shot in the knee, most seriously wounded and disabled for life. Three days after this, a caretaker on an evicted farm not far away was shot in the head with five pellets, and left for dead.

Source: The Irish Revolution - Michael J.F. McCarthy - 1912

The 1901 Irish Census records James Tuite as a 50-year-old, Co. Westmeath born, unmarried, Justice of the Peace. He is residing with his brother, John, a 63-year-old jeweller, at 6, Greville Street, Mullingar, recorded in the census as a shop and private dwelling,. The brother's religion was recorded as Catholic.

The 1911 Irish Census records James as a 61-year-old Magistrate/Jeweller. He is recorded at 18, Greville Street, and is still unmarried.
