Colemans Sacks 003When browsing the newly published Revolution Papers, you may see an ad for Coleman’s of Chancery Street, Dublin. Coleman’s was set up by Michael Coleman, who was born in Kilmeedy around 1838. It was subsequently run by his descendents. Their main business was waterproof covers, sacks, rick covers, binder twine and sails. It appears the company existed from the 1890’s, or possibly earlier, up to the 1960’s.

Over the years, they operated from various premises on Chancery Street and Greek Street, close to the current Dublin District Court and Bridewell Garda Station.
