We were delighted to get our hands on a copy of ‘Michael Governey 1852 – 1924’, written by his grandson Mr. Eugene Carbery. The book was launched last week in the Town Hall, with various guest speakers. Congratulations Eugene for a wonderful and informative book – it’s since become a favourite for our volunteers to borrow when they come into the museum.

Carlow County Museum has a full display of items from Governey’s Boot Factory, opened in 1903, including the original factory front signpairs of shoes and cobblers tools. If you’re interested in learning a bit more about this incredible Carlow industry, make sure to pop in and visit us.
