The photographs will be hosted at City Hall.From 1912 until his death in 1973, Haselbeck was a professional photographer in the city and he was famous for his work as he cycled the streets of Limerick on his bike in an effort to photograph and record major events including the War of independence and construction projects of his time.Running at City Hall this month and next, the exhibition is free to all and includes many archival documents on his life both professional and personal.Ranks Mills, the Shannon scheme at Ardnacrusha power station and water ways along with the construction of a Irish Wire and the Cement factory all feature in the work from the German who moved to Limerick with his family in the early 1900s.Franz S. Haselbeck’s genius wasn’t recognised in his own lifetime but now, thanks to the hard work and dedication of his only grandchild, Patricia Haselbeck Flynn, his wonderful photographs can be appreciated by all in a book launched by Collins Press late last year.

Lt. Jack Fitzpatrick, commander of the Homicide Squad. “When the staff tries to stop him for his own protection, he then begins to physically attack them.”Workers at the home asked that Dainell Simmons, who had been a resident of the home for its entire six-year existence, be taken to Stony Brook University Hospital for a psychiatric emergency, police said.“He seems to be somewhat calmed down until they tell him that he’s going to have to leave,” Fitzpatrick said.Simmons then allegedly tried to kick and bite the first three officers on the scene as the altercation spread across several rooms in the house before they used a Taser “at least twice” and pepper spray on him, Fitzpatrick said.After he was under control, Simmons went unconscious as an ambulance arrived. Officers and EMTs began CPR before he was taken to John T. Mather Memorial Hospital in Port Jefferson, where he died.His body was taken to the Suffolk County Medical Examiner’s office, where an autopsy will be performed to determine the man’s cause of death.Several officers were treated and released from local hospitals for injuries they suffered during the struggle, police added.A woman who answered the phone at the group home declined to comment.Homicide Squad detectives are continuing the investigation.Fitzpatrick noted that the officers involved will not be back at work until they heal and will then likely be on modified duty pending an evaluation.last_img read more
