Review of 'Gerald & Sheila Goldberg of Cork: A Son's Perspective' in The Irish Times

Last Saturday, in The Ticket, The Irish Times ran the following review: "Gerald Goldberg, an Orthodox Jew, practised criminal law in Cork for 63 years, was the first Jewish president of the Law Society of Ireland, was an Independent and Fianna Fail member of Cork Corporation and became the first Jewish lord mayor of Cork in 1977. He married Sheila Beth Smith, from a well-known Belfast Jewish family, in 1937 and they lived on Rochestown Road in Cork. Deeply involved in Cork's artistic life, they assisted, among others, Aloys Fleischmann, and were patrons of the Crawford Gallery and Cork Orchestral Society. A very active philanthropist, Sheila fundraised for organisations such as Meals on Wheels and Cork Spastic Society. Their son's tribute is informative, loving, admiring and, in his father's case, critically insightful."
