I am formally June Tonge. My father Arthur worked in Tonge & Taggart(Iron founders)as a patternmaker from when he was 17 till 63 in 1984. The firm started in 1869 in Bishop Street in Dublin. Then in 1884 approx. it moved to Windmill Lane (now music studios). His cousin Claude was managing director until he died 1969. My dad's father,William, was a patternmaker then he was manager. Other members of the family worked there also. My father says he never knew of any Taggarts while he was there. I think they parted early in the business but the name stuck. He would like to know Kieron who your father was, would it have been Thomas(Max). Hope this is of some bnenfit to you........June Comiskey
