Something old , Something new and somethings that never change

Beautiful Kerry

Chris Grayson took this in Killarney National Park last week


Snooker Players

This is another of Mike Hannon's old photos I found online. I'm presuming it was taken in the bands room/ St. Patrick's Hall


 'Twas Rough in These Parts in August 1825

"A barbarous outrage was committed on Sunday last, on the person of an elderly man, of the name of Neligan, near Listowel, at one of those gaol(sic) matches which usually disgrace the Sabbath. He was a spectator on this occasion, when some of the contending party struck him with hurlies on the head; he fell and was trampled on, while repeated blows put an end to his existence. The only pretence that can be assigned for this murder is that he was connected with a party against whom his assailants cherished a hostile feeling from some old recontre."—Limerick Chronicle.


St. Patrick's Day

Not long to wait now until our patron saint's day and a big parade is planned.
