FAITH: And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send?’ Then I said, ‘Here am I! Send me!’ Isaiah 6:8 ; It is through working together, praying together and planning together that we discover our respective roles as Christians. Today’s parish needs the participation and the involvement of all whereas in the past, much parish activity revolved around what the priest did. Collaboration between priests and parishioners is not about ‘helping the priest’. Collaboration recognises, uses and celebrates the gifts God has given each of us, for the service of all e.g. parish pastoral councils, weeks of directed prayer and liturgy groups, taken from Parish newsletter.

The John and William Brennan in Guhard in 1901 were my grampas, Edmond/Edward’s father (John) and uncle (William).
One of those two Eugene’s in 1901 was another brother of John and William, all sons of a Philip who was married to a Mary Broder/Broderick from Farranastack. That’s were the Broder/Brodericks come into the picture.

I don’t have a Michael Brennan in Guhard in that generation—but maybe I do! and maybe you’ve found another brother of Michael.
Another Eugene, son of John and brother to my grampa Ed inherited the farm in Guhard from his father John.
This Eugene was listed as head in 1911 and father John was still living there.

I don’t know where my Enrights are “from”, one of them married one of my Guhard Brennans.
There was a Maude Enright alive-quite old in her 90s I think, in 2001 who was a descendant of this family.

Where are my Sheehys from???
My grampa’s mother was Margaret Sheehy , married to John Brennan of Guhard.

Grampa came here to Chicago with 3 Sheehy siblings from “Duagh”. ( I don’t know if it was town or townland Duagh, or somewhere else in Duagh parish.) My understanding is that they were first cousins, so I think but have not proved that my gg Margaret Sheehy Brennan must have been their aunt, so she must be from Duagh, too. But not proved yet.

My Howard great grandmother (wife of John Howard) was a Mary Walsh, daughter of John Walsh–of Ballyhorgan/Lyrecrumpane, that must be the family you have identified.

Are you a descendant of the Michael Kennelly son of Margaret Brennan?

Just to let you know that there were 85 Brennan families in Kerry in 1901.
Pat was in Ahabeg, Lixnaw;John and William were in Guhard, Lisselton, Eugene in Lacca and Eugene at Lahardane also Lisselton;
Fr Brennan was Parish Priest in Listowel over 50 years ago.
The present Parish Priest of Listowel Cannon Linnane may a relation of the Brennan’s of Guhard.

Brennan artist of Ballybunion may be related .

Michael Kennelly died some years ago an old man his mother Was Margaret Brennan a daughter of Michael Brennan of Guhard?. Michael’s Grandmother was Walsh she was born c 1850. Most Michael Kennelly’s 14 children went abroad.

Pat Hannon was in Ballyduhig in 1901.While Matt and John and Matt was in Listowel.
Pat H may be related to Hannon Auctioneers of Listowel.
I had part of their family Tree, some yrs ago but will search sometime for it.

16 Howard Families in Kerry in 1901, as far as I can make out none live in Lixnaw, Listowel or Duagh.

Ballyhorgan is in Lixnaw Parish.
Some Walsh families live in Lyrecrompane which is in Duagh Parish.

Mary Howard Baptised in Ballybunion as Ballybunion is a tourist resort she may be there for her health or with a relative or working there.

I Know of the Brennan’s of Guhard and Behan Butcher.

Where are your Enrights,Broder and Sheehy from.

Very difficult to trace although I do have my gramma’s birth certificate.
It says Ballyhorgan, Bromodera. Parents John Howard and Mary Walsh.
(Somehow, lyrecrumane figures in to this family’s whereabouts or origins, too.)
Her brother John Howards’ baptismal cert was found in the RC Lixnaw parish records.

There was an Ellen Howard of Bromodera who married a Patrick Hannon in 1877 in the Lixnaw Irremore RC Parish records.
This Ellen’s father was John Howard of Bromodera and Patrick Hannon was son of John Hannon of LIstowel.
We believe this Ellen Howard was probably aunt to my gramma Julia.

Ellen and Patrick Hannon had at least two sons, John (1877) and Thomas (1880). Thomas was born in Ballyduhig.

There was also a Mary Howard sister of my gramma Julia Howard. We think that a Mary Howard born to John Howard and Mary Walsh in Duagh in 1877 may be her. Even thought the baptism records shows her born in Duagh, her Baptismal records are in Ballybunion RC Parish.

Our Mary Howard (according to my gramma’s 1936 Chicago obit) was Mrs. Dennis HIckey in 1936.

Did you ever know or hear anything of the Brennans of Guhard, Lisselton.
Do you know Behan the Butcher at the Lisselton crossroads, by chance.

Researching: Brennan, Sheehy, Howard, Walsh, Broderick, Broder, Enright, and many more……..

When my grandmother Julia Howard (later Mrs. Edw.Brennan) arrived in
Chicago in 1907
her passenger manifest (Ellis Island) states she was going to her
“Cousin Nora Ahern” who was living at 1343 Watson Ave. Chicago.

Traveling with gramma from Listowel was Catherine Dillon.
Catherine Dillon also stated her destination was “Cousin Nora Ahern”
of the same Watson Ave address in Chicago.

Catherine Dillon listed her father as Thomas Dillon of LIstowel.

Does anyone have either this CATHERINE DILLOR or NORA AHERN in their
Sr. Mary Estelle was born Margaret Cunningham in 1898 in Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (now Moyvane), Co. Kerry. Her parents were Richard Cunningham and Brigid Dore. At the age of 17 she and her older sister Johanna joined the Sisters of St. Joseph in Concordia, Kansas where a distant relative, John Francis Cunningham, was a bishop. Sr. Mary Estelle worked as a nurse for many years at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Belvedere, Illinois where she died in 1987 aged 89.

Johanna, Sr. Mary Estelle’s sister, became Sr. Mary Ellen and worked in El Paso, Texas for a time before moving back to Concordia to work in St. Anthony’s Hospital there. Sr. Mary Ellen died in Concordia in 198?

Poet O Donnell who lived at Graigue was born about 100 years ago he had relations in the Parish. John Casey aged 90 gave me one of his Rhymes recently. It was composed about a girl who worked at Creagh Harnett’s long ago, she came home from a local dance and knelt at a chair to say her night prayers. The Poet observing the girl composed the following.
“Few and short were the prayers she said,
Her head was bent in sorrow
Eyes eagerly gazed on a cake of bread.
She left not a bit for the morrow.”

April 7th Notes

DEATH of Pope John Paul 11 on Saturday evening April 2nd on the eve of Divine Mercy Sunday brought back many memories of the Popes life and work. When he solemnly consecrated the World to the Divine Mercy Pope John Paul said “Apart from the mercy of God there is no other hope for mankind”. For most of us his visit to Ireland was the highlight of our lives, the Irish showed their affection for the first Pope to visit our country by flocking to meet him and decorate streets and houses with appropriate flags. It would be nice if the Churches and local libraries had a display of memorabilia on the life of our much loved Pope John Paul 11. The Pope was human like ourselves and will need our prayers and he in turn will intercede for us in our journey through life.

The Archbishop of Toronto on the Lough Derg Pilgrimage.
We have great pleasure in laying before our readers the second letter from his Grace the Archbishop of Toronto on the Pilgrimage to Lough Derg:— Lough Derg, August 14, 1879.

Very Rev. and Dear Sir—In my last I promised to continue to speak of the religious exercises performed on making the stations on this holy island.

First there is a visit to the Blessed Sacrament; then a Pater, Ave, and Creed outside at the Cross of St. Patrick, then the pilgrim proceeds around St. Patrick’s Church, and a rougher path could not be conceived. It lies around the edge of the lake. He then goes to the Cross of St. Bridgid, where on his knees he recites three Paters, three Aves, and a Creed; then standing with outstretched arms he renounces thrice the devil, the world, and the flesh. The next in order is to go the rough road round St. Patrick’s Church seven times, repeating each time one Our Father, ten Hail Marys, and the Creed. The pilgrim has now walked a hard half mile, meditating upon the more painful journey of Christ up the Hill of Calvary. He next proceeds to the St. Brigid’s Station, with its crucifix in the centre, and recites three Our Fathers, three Aves, and one Creed, whilst going round the station on the outside. Arriving at the entrance he kneels down and repeats on his knees the same prayers again. He stands up, and then walks round the cross, reciting again the three Our Fathers, three Hail Marys, and the Creed. The three inside circles being completed, he kneels again opposite the cross, and recites the same prayers. The same number of prayers are recited at the six other stations; then the pilgrim proceeds to the lake, near where St. Patrick kneeled on a rock in the water praying that the faith of the Irish should never fail. The pilgrims are not now permitted to follow his example in this; but at the water’s edge they recite five Our Fathers and five Hail Marys, standing, and the same number of prayers on their knees. They then return to St. Patrick’s Cross, whence they had commenced, and recite one Pater, one Ave, and a Creed, and finish all by reciting five decades of the Rosary. I noticed the pilgrims going to the lake, after each station, and bathing their feet, hot enough, I presume, after an hour and a quarter’s walk on the rough and rocky paths of the stations. I noticed some of the rocks around the stations, upon which all had to step, black and oily from the sweat of the feet of innumerable pilgrims. Those exercises of the stations reminded me of the Armenian clergy whilst reciting Vespers in the great monastery situated in the Bay of Venice, so that these circuits round the stations seem to be of eastern antiquity. St John Climacus in his book “Ladder of Perfection” describes the penances done in what was called ” the prison” of a certain monastery as most severe, but I think not much more so than those performed on the Island of Lough Derg. The penitential exercises of the station which we have described are repeated three times a day, morning, noon, and evening. The pilgrims, besides, assist at several Masses each day, with an exhortation; then, at twelve o’clock, all make a visit to the Blessed Sacrament. The priest recites the prayers, and usually gives a short instruction. At six o’clock they assemble again in St. Patrick’s Church, when the evening sermon is preached, followed by the Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament. The pilgrims spend the whole night in what is termed the ” prison,” St. Patrick’s Church being used for the purpose. They spend their time in making the Stations of the Cross, singing hymns, reciting the Rosary and other prayers, and spend much besides in meditating on the malice of sin, the hatred which God bears it, and its punishments. When morning has fairly dawned they leave the prison, wash their feet and head in the lake, and are permitted to taste a little of the water in the hollow of their hands. They require this little refreshment, as the heat of the prison and the watching all night and reciting so many prayers is most fatiguing. But the pilgrims come to the island to commute, through the mercy of God and the indulgences of the Church, the pains of purgatory for this temporal suffering. Formerly during the night an exhortation was given on the great truths of eternity. Pilgrims used to be so often and much excited to contrition for their sins that their sobs and cries, which were contagious, distressed too much the whole island, and on that account the exportation was discontinued. The priests on the island hear confessions the whole day and far into the night. The Bishop of Clogher, during the annual retreat, appoints a certain number of his priests to attend as confessors during the station. One of them he appoints as prior, who is his representative on the island. His lordship often attends himself, and works like any of his priests. After the community Mass each morning one of the priests is commissioned to bless beads, crosses, and medals, to invest in all the scapulars approved of by the Holy see, and to impart all the indulgences attached. All these religious objects can be procured very cheaply on the island. The ordinary prayers recited during the stations are more numerous than at any other pilgrimage I ever heard of. I counted them, and I believe I am accurate when I say that 321 Our Fathers, 615 Hail Marys, and 93 Creeds are recited each day. The Irish were always noted for their great spirit of prayer and mortification, and when we consider that all these stations are performed each day before the pilgrim takes a morsel of food or drink, we may form some idea of the penances done and the fervour requisite on the island. Pilgrims have assured me that they felt very little inconvenience from the fast or any of the other penances. The old adage came to my mind that” Love lightens labour” and what was said of St. Laurence, that the fire within was stronger than the fire without. There are a few cabins on the island for the accommodation of pilgrims, but these are inadequate in every sense.

Many never enter them, but when they are overpowered they snatch a little sleep wherever they can—often on the rocks and grassy mounds of the island, which after all contains only about an acre. They say that they never get cold or receive any injury from the wet or exposure of the place. A large and commodious lodging-house is about to be erected, which, indeed, is badly needed. Many come delicate enough to this retreat, I am told, and return home healthy and rejoicing, and always resolve to come back again. I found a great number who had performed this pilgrimage seven and eight times. Some said that they came regularly for many years past. There were five from America making the station with us, and we are told that some Americans come in almost every boat. We thank God that there is one place on earth where the primitive spirit of penance remains, and the one idea of following Christ along the thorny path which leads to heaven dominates. The fervent countenances of the pilgrims, their ages and conditions of life, and the alacrity with which they performed the painful duties of the station raised me up, and made me despise my own pusillanimity, and encouraged me to perform my station. I could not do more than go round the station once each day. It occupied me one hour and a half, though the young and nimble can perform them in one hour and a quarter. The bishop commuted the other two stations to preaching and hearing confessions, which I did willingly. Some prolonged their stations for six, and even for nine days, fasting all the time. I know from experience that life on the island is exceptional. One does not feel as usual; he forgets the world and its cares, and fears nothing. One gentleman told me that if he got his foot wet, and did not change his stockings very soon, he got a sore throat; but seeing the others bare-footed, he took off his shoes, and performed the penances of the whole day, without the slightest inconvenience. I think that all this, if not miraculous, is at least an especial dispensation of Providence, to preserve in some degree the primitive spirit of Irish faith and Irish mortification. The water of the lake is also exceptional, if not indeed miraculous. It is largely impregnated with iron from many springs that enter it, and tastes very agreeably when boiled and taken hot. Other water would excite nausea in this condition. The people have great faith in the ” wine,” as they call it, of the lake. They attribute to its use their strength to go through the stations. St. Patrick knelt in it, for hours together, and there prayed so much for the faith of Ireland that they believe it possesses a virtue capable of working wonders, I would advise dyspeptic people to come here and live on the oaten bread, drink plenty of the water of the lake, and perform at least some of the religious exercises, and if they are not vastly improved in three days they can leave, and blame me. Persons can gain the indulgences granted by Popes to this sanctuary as at other famous pilgrimages, by confession, communion, and the usual prayers, but of course they cannot expect to gain all the graces attached to the penitential exercises without performing them in full. I found very illustrious names on the registry book of pilgrims kept here.

Many distinguished prelates of the Irish Church have visited this island in latter times, from the Primate of Ireland, who made his annual pilgrimage here for many years, down to the lowest order of the hierarchy. During the present year’s station it was visited by the Archbishop of Cashel, the Bishops of Elphin and Achonry, and several worthy members of the secular and regular clergy, who all proclaimed themselves deeply moved and edified by the scenes of the place. It contributes greatly to the fervour of the pilgrims to feel that they are walking on paths moistened by the sweat and tears of thousands of saints and millions of penitents from the time of St. Patrick. Father O’Connor has render great service to faith and fatherland by his charming book on Lough Derg and its pilgrimages. It is published by Dollard, of Dublin, and can be obtained from any bookseller. I am bringing, as an offering to our Holy Father, four souvenirs of Lough Derg—1st, the book of Father O’Connor; 2nd, a shamrock to be planted in the Vatican gardens; 3rd, a piece of oaten bread ; and 4th, a little of the lake water, to show his Holiness the food used by the pilgrims whilst performing their stations, and that only once a day, in the evening, like the Fathers of the Desert. Our departure, on the fourth day, was one which spoke deeply to our hearts. Many of the pilgrims had fully dressed themselves even to their shoes; this was the sign that they had finished their holy work on the island. All appeared in good health, but bore on their countenances the expression of great interior devotion. There was quite a rush to get on our boat, but the singers by a special arrangement were first let in. The boat was weighted to the water’s edge. The Bishop of Clogher, from the boat’s deck, pronounced his solemn benediction on those remaining behind; then we followed. The people kneeling on the shore, with uplifted hands and tears of devotion, received our parting blessings. When the boat moved off from the shore, Father O’Connor intoned the pilgrim’s farewell hymn, which the choir took up with great fervour. Then his lordship, Dr. Donnelly, commenced the “Magnificat,” which was sung in two choirs, the splashing oars appearing to keep time with the music, I had some blessed medals, which I distributed to my fellow-passengers as souvenirs, of the pilgrimage, standing the while with my back to the old boathouse, to prevent being surrounded and carried off my feet. I succeeded in giving to all with some inconvenience, but at the time with great pleasure. Oh ! what simplicity, fervour, and reverence for the clergy. Thank God our good people don’t leave this behind when they come to America.

I must not forget to say that I prayed most fervently at the holy shrine, and offered up the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for the people of the diocese of Toronto, and especially for those who are my co-labourers in the salvation of souls. The same I shall do in every other holy place.—Yours in Christ, John Joseph Lynch, Archbishop of Toronto.
Very Rev. P. F. Rooney, V.G., St. Mary’s Church, Toronto.

LOUGH DERG PILGRIMAGE
Happily the attempt to establish private ownership over one of the most ancient Christian pilgrimages in Europe has failed. By the decision of Judge Cooke, Station Island, in Lough Derg, remains the property of the Catholic Church, and no one but the Bishop of Clogher and the Prior nominated by him has any power of control over it. For Sir John Leslie, who sought to establish a right of ownership over the island, it was pleaded by his counsel at Donegal Quarter Sessions last week that he would not interfere with the pilgrimages in any way—” they would be absolutely safe ” and ” they would not suffer the slightest injury,” he said. The the present Sir John Leslie could not control his successors, and there is no guarantee that, if he kept his undertaking, some person after him would respect it. The title of the Church to the islands of the pilgrimage is the oldest and most firmly established in the country, and the pilgrims are entitled to continue their devotions without disturbance, or the possibility of disturbance, at the whim of any descendant of the Leslie family or any other. Sir John Leslie failed to produce any document or any evidence of his or his predecessors’ rights over the islands of Lough Derg. There are six tenants who keep lodging houses on the island, all of whom pay a nominal rent to the Prior. In only one case, and only for a limited time, had any tenant paid rent to the present Sir John or his predecessor, nor was any evidence given of right or authority to claim rent. Thirty years ago the Sir John Leslie of that day took proceedings to assert his ownership of the island, but he abandoned the proceedings, and an agreement was come to from which, in the words of Judge Cooke, “it was perfectly manifest that the question of the ownership of the soil of the island was intended to be excluded from the decision in that action” and that “the late Sir John Leslie, then armed and fortified with all the panoply of counsel, refused to proceed to assert his title ”
What happened since is singular, indeed. ” It is a most remarkable thing, said the Judge, ” that the only agreement that can be produced by Sir John Leslie in this case in regard to the letting of the lodging-houses in dispute is of a letting made in 1881, subsequent to the action, to a man named Thomas Muldoon, at £1 a year. He took it that that formal document was made for the purpose of showing at a future time, such as the present, that there was such a letting at a definite rent to Muldoon ” None of the Priors had any knowledge of this payment to Leslie, the first they heard of it being at the opening of the present case The Judge had no difficulty in disregarding this bogus tenancy. He went back to the undoubted title of the Catholic Church to these islands before the Church lands of Termon Magrath, surrounding the lake, were confiscated in 1680, but the Catholic priests and people found sanctuary on the island, and the pilgrimage, dating from the fifth or sixth century, was continued, with two brief intervals in 1632 and 1704, when religious persecution sought to stifle the pious observance and, as the distinguished antiquarian, Mr John Cooke, M A., of Trinity College, observes, ” failed in its object.” The latter attempt, the Act passed in the reign of Queen Anne, admits the power of the Pilgrimage of Lough Derg in its preamble. The words of the Act are” Whereas the superstitions of Popery are greatly increased and upheld by the pretended sanctity of places, especially of a place called St. Patrick’s Purgatory in Co Donegal, to which pilgrimages are made by vast numbers of certain persons, by which not only the peace of the public is greatly disturbed but the safety of the Government is also hazarded”

This great pilgrimage, which has survived probably from the days of St Patrick to our own, without being interrupted for a single year, lasts from the 1st June to the Feast of the Assumption on the 15th August each year. There is a strong tradition from the earliest days in the north-west of lreland that St Patrick spent on one of the islands of Lough Deig one of his periods of solitary prayer and that he had here the Vision of Purgatory, which has given its name to the pilgrimage Saint Dabheog, his disciple, who accompanied him in his Irish mission, erected the first ecclesiastical foundations on the islands of the lough.

For those persons who have not engaged in the pilgrimage already a special meeting is being arranged on next Thursday at 8 pm. in the Christian Brothers’ Schools, South Cumberland Street, at which instructions will be given.

ARCHBISHOP PISANI’S VISIT TO LOUGH DERG BASILICA PRAISED
(IRISH PRESS Correspondent.) ENNISKILLEN, Monday. OVER 500 barefooted pilgrims were performing the exercises of the retreat in a drenching downpour when Most Rev. Dr. Pisani, Titular Archbishop of Constantia, visited Lough Derg yesterday, accompanied by Most Rev. Dr. McKenna, Bishop of Clogher, and Rev. Fr. Hannon, S.J., Dublin. Archbishop Pisani represented the Pope at the Emancipation celebrations in Dublin in 1929, and attended the Eucharistic Congress. He was received by the Prior of Lough Derg, Rev. Monsignor Keown, P.P., V.G.; Rev. T. J. Meegan, C.C., and Rev. Fr. McKenna. The Archbishop visited the churches, the hospices, and other buildings on the island. As he passed along the Archbishop was surrounded by groups of pilgrims, who knelt down to kiss his ring and receive his blessing. The pilgrims were from Westland Row Parish, Dublin. Archbishop Pisani stated that he had beheld many scenes of piety and devotion since he came to Ireland, but nothing had impressed him so much as Lough Derg.

Here, he said, he had met people of every rank and station in life, rich and poor, performing the rigorous exercises of the pilgrimage, and what he greatly admired was that, notwithstanding the severity of the exercises, rendered even more severe by the inclement weather, all of them were perfectly happy.

When Archbishop Pisani and the Bishop of Clogher were leaving the island, the pilgrims assembled on the pier and sang ” God Bless Our Pope.” From the boat, Archbishop Pisani and the Bishop of of Clogher imparted their blessings to the pilgrims, who sang the ” Farwell Hymn to Lough Derg,” and the ” Hymn to St. Patrick.” –
Amidst rousing cheers the boat, which was manned by ten sturdy oarsmen, set out for the Pettigo shore. The party afterwards proceeded by motor to Bundoran, where they visited the Very Rev. Canon McGrath, P.P., and afterwards went to Enniskillen, where they were received by Right Rev. Monsignor Tierney, P.P., V.G. Archbishop Pisani visited St. Michael’s Church, Enniskillen. Later he and the Bishop of Clogher left for Monaghan.
Yesterday afternoon Archbishop Pisani visited his Eminence Cardinal MacRory at Armagh.

LOUGH DERG- The Annual Pilgrimage.
Longford, Monday- During the weekend there was a last hour’s rush of pilgrims for the lonely island of Lough Derg, among the hills of Donegal. This three months’ pilgrimage- ends to-day, and as it is a three-day pilgrimage, this was the last day for pilgrims to avail of this year’s penitential exercises on St. Patrick’s Purgatory, as the island in the lake is named. Rain was falling on Saturday evening as the last boat left the mainland for the Island with its full complement of pilgrims. They returned to-day after three days’ fasting and praying. Some of them went to the island barefooted. Those who wore boots or shoes discarded them on reaching the island and proceeded on their rounds of the Stations, beads in hand, traversing the rugged ground amongst the Saints Beds on the Island. Lough Derg stands out above all other holy places in Ireland as a penitential spot where the weary sinner, cut off from the world, can make his peace with God, or where the piously inclined has ample means of getting nearer to God, through fasting, corporal austerities and spiritual vigil. It was there Saint Patrick spent a penitential season, and from a cave in one of the islands of the lake he was vouchsafed a glimpse of the fire of Purgatory. The Apostle of Ireland was initiated in his austerities by many saints and sinners, until the spot became fatuous throughout the Continent as a place of pilgrimage. Its fame passed into literature, so that It inspired many mediaeval writers, the manuscripts of whose works still survive. Dante and Ariosto fell under its spell, and it is possible that the former’s Purgatorio owes not a little in conception and outline to St. Patrick’s Purgatory.
Many people this year travelled to it many miles barefooted and in prayer and fasting. In this Eucharistic Congress year distinguished visitors from all parts of the globe have visited this Island of Peace in a troubled world.

LOUGH DERG PILGRIMS
Large numbers of men and women travelled from Dublin to Lough Derg on Saturday to take part in the first pilgrimage of the year. There were nearly 500 members in the party organised by the Legion of Mary. A second party, the 26th annual Father Mathew Hall pilgrimage, was led by Rev. Father Basil, O.M.Cap.

Almost 15,000 Visited Island Shrine LOUGH DERG
(IRISH PRESS Correspondent.) PETTIGO, Tuesday.- TO-DAY witnessed the final scenes at St. Patrick’s Purgatory, Lough Derg, when 340 pilgrims embarked for the mainland, thence to journey to their homes in remote parts of Ireland and Great Britain, thus bringing to a close one of the most successful pilgrimage season’s on record. In the famine year of 1846 the highest recorded number of pilgrims 30,000 visited the island. This year the pilgrims numbered 14815, which surpasses the previous modern record of 14,287 in 1919. The previous highest figure since the famine was in 1916
, when 10,584 visited the shrine. A remarkable feature this year has been the number of young men and women who made the pilgrimage for the first time. Most of them expressed their intention of returning in future years. Right Rev. Monsignor Keown, P.P., V.G., Prior in Charge of the Island, and his assistants, Rev. Fr. Meegan, C.C., and Rev. Fr. McKenna, C.C., were unceasing in their ministration to the pilgrims. To-day Pettigo presented a deserted appearance. At the Shrine itself, the staff who tended the pilgrims are busy making preparations to depart, and the boats are being secured against the winter storms on Lough Derg. By the end of the week the caretaker will be keeping his lonely watch undisturbed until preparations are begun for the pilgrimages of 1934.

LOUGH DERG- Scenes At Departure Of Waterford Pilgrims.
Waterford, Friday.—Scenes of animation and considerable bustle were witnessed on the Quay this afternoon, when, those participating in the first pilgrimage from Waterford to Lough Derg assembled there preparatory to boarding the two special G.S.R. de luxe buses that were in waiting opposite the G.P.O. The party, which was led by Very Rev. Fr. Antonine, O.F.M., Guardian, consisted of fifty-two ladies and two gentlemen from Waterford City, Tramore and other County Waterford centres. They were seen off by numerous friends whose presence, added to that of the pilgrims, attracted much attention. After Mountmellick, their first halt will be made at the Multyfarnham Franciscan College for tea, and thence they will proceed to Sligo, where they will spend the night. The journey will be resumed tomorrow morning, and the pilgrims are timed to reach Lough Derg about noon.

Thousands Assemble At Knock.
LOUGH DERG SHRINE Basilica Illuminated All Night.

Claremorris, Thursday—Scenes reminiscent of Lourdes were witnessed to-day at the little Church of Knock, some seven miles from Claremorris, when pilgrims drawn from all parts of Ireland, as well as England and Scotland, travelled to that now famous church to partake in the celebrations of the fifty-sixth commemoration of the apparition.
Close on 4000 people kept vigil throughout the night, and until the early hours of dawn aged infirm people on bare knees and with bowed heads did the Stations of the Cross, while parents with little children snuggled closed to their breasts prayed that the Almighty might relieve them from their sufferings. In the early hours of this morning it was rumoured that a pilgrim had been cured,
But enquiries made from the medical bureau, which has been opened at the nearby convent, failed to a comfirmation of the report. From six o’clock this morning until noon the Holy sacrifice of the Mass was offered. Over 2,000 people approached the Altar Rails. At the conclusion of the 12 O’clock Mass an interesting sermon on the feast of the Assumption was given by Rev, Fr. Corcoran, C.C., Knock. On Sunday next the annual pilgrimage will take place from Dublin, and it is understood that Alderman A. Byrne, Lord Mayor of Dublin, will be amongst those to travel from the capital on that day.
Mr. Patrick Byrne, one of those who witnessed the apparition, presented our representative with some of the mortar taken from the gable of the church at the time of the apparition, in the year 1879.
LOUGH DERG SHRINE. Pilgrimages Close On Feast Of Assumption.
Galway, Thursday.—There were striking final scenes at St. Patrick’s Purgatory on the famous island in Lough Derg, Co. Donegal, when the penitential pilgrimage for 1935 concluded on the Feast of the Assumption. This year no fewer than 13,0OO pilgrims from all parts of Ireland, Great Britain, and beyond the seas, visited the island and carried out the three days’ devotional and penitential exercises. One feature was that an increasing number came from the western counties of Ireland, notably Kerry, Clare, Galway, Roscommon, and Mayo. One hundred and forty travelled from Liverpool and did the pilgrimage together, whilst increasing numbers of English and Scotch clergymen have visited the island this year.

On the concluding nights of the pilgrimage the famous basilica of St. Patrick, the conception of Scott, and the only basilica in these islands, was illuminated fully. During the all-night vigil the three Altars and the beautiful translucent alabaster pulpit gleamed under the great dome as eleven hundred pilgrims recited the Stations unceasingly throughout the night watches until Mass was celebrated by Right Rev. Monsignor Keown. P.P., V.G., at 6.30 in the morning. The last boats which arrived on the island on Tuesday brought the final contingents of 460 pilgrims, mostly from the nearby hills and farms and townships of Donegal.

The numbers this year were slightly fewer than those of last year, but an IRISH PRESS reporter learned at Enniskillen Presbytery last night, the pilgrimages were very well attended despite the heavy rains and generally bad weather.
Rev. Thomas Meegan, C.C, Chaplain to the pilgrims, is still on the island.

Its History Through the Ages
Lough Derg is about four miles North of Pettigo, the lake is about six miles long and four miles broad. Contains several rocky islands. Two of which were the scene of St Patrick’s Purgatory. The legend of the vision of St Patrick was made known about the middle of the 12th century, by Henry and English Benedictine monk. Described the descent of Owain, a knight of the King of Stephen in 1153.
Pope Alexander V1 ordered its destruction, carried out in 1479, but it sprang up again under Pope Pius 111 and continued for next two centuries. Inserted in Roman Missal 1522. Was made subject of a drama by Caldern. 1632 The Lord Justices of Ireland Prohibited all such assemblies, also in 1704 an act was passed again prohibiting such assemblies. Monastery destroyed on Saints Island, only ruins there now. See Moore’s Melodies for some lines on Lough Derg.
“I wish I was by that dim lake.
Where sinful souls their farewell take
Of this vain world, and halfway lie
In Death’s cold shadow ere they die”

Island of Sanctuary is about half a mile from the shore, contains St Patrick’s and St Mary’s Churches, a Bell Tower, a presbytery and a large hospice for pilgrims.
1st June to 15th August is prescribed time for going to the Island. Pilgrims stay from 3 to 6 days. Number of visitors per year about 4,000.
The only refreshment black tea and dry bread, one meal only. Water of the lake is boiled and sweetened and called wine. It is brown in colour.

Lough Derg
STATION Island on Lough Derg, County Donegal, empty of pilgrims, priests, nuns and staff since the season closed in August last, opened this year on Saturday last when 1,400 pilgrims arrived from all over Ireland. Among the pilgrims were a group of forty-five who travelled from Tralee , Listowel and West Limerick district by special bus. They had spent the preceding night at the Yeats Country Hotel, Rosses Point, outside Sligo, and so arrived at the island fresh to face the various, difficult exercises. On the first night a vigil was kept in St Patrick’s Basilica. Right Rev. Monsignor Ward, P.P.. Dean of Lough Derg, welcomed the pilgrims and imparted the Papal Blessing which had been granted by Our Holy Father to all pilgrims. The Dean preached a short sermon in Irish and told of the many spiritual benefits to be gained by visiting Lough Derg and carrying out the station exercises properly. Lough Derg will be visited by many thousands of pilgrims between now and August 15, when the season closes. Dean Ward was very interested to learn from Mr. Michael Kennelly of Listowel of arrangements being made to bring a group of 50 German Catholic Youth from Wurthburg in Southern Germany, to Lough Derg early in August.

TRALEE BRANCH OF THE LABOUR PARTY At a special meeting: of the above Branch, held on Saturday, a sincere vote of sympathy was passed to the relatives of the late Rev. Brendan Hogan and also to the relatives of the late Harry Sealer.

LIMERICK TO LOUGH DERG PILGRIMAGE
We are requested to Introduce to the reading public a Limerick pilgrimage to Lough Derg, sponsored by St. Munchin’s Parish, and we very willingly do so, believing that it will help to render still more illustrious the fame of our National Pilgrimage and attract many pilgrims from our city who otherwise might not be attracted to this holy Shrine.
The pious exercise of pilgrimage is as old as religion itself From the earliest ages the Church has never failed to foster and to cherish this religious practice. Love and veneration for the places rendered memorable by the life and sufferings of Our Divine Lord, of the Apostles and the servants of God, impel the faithful in the spirit of religious fervour to visit these holy places

THE PILGRIM SPIRIT.
That the children of the Irish race were largely endowed with the pilgrim spirit is sufficiently attested by the great number of places of pilgrimage throughout the country. Pilgrimage to crosses and holy wells were—and still continue to a considerable extent—a very popular and cherished devotion among the Catholics of Ireland. Of these crosses many were blessed by saints whose name they bear, while others were dedicated to them and placed under their tutelage. According to O’Kelly, there were four principal places of pilgrimage in Ireland, one in each of the provinces, namely, St Patrick’s Mountain (Croagh Patrick in Connacht), St Patrick’s Purgatory in Ulster, St. Michael’s Rock in Munster (namely, Skellig-Mlchael off the coast of Kerry) and St. Kevin’s, Glendalough, in Leinster. Amongst these, St. Patrick’s Purgatory, Lough Derg, has always held a foremost place, and it must be regarded as by pre-eminence the national pilgrimage of Ireland. Its course of penance at the present day finds no parallel in the Christian world. Many saints found there a desert of seclusion and pilgrims of every rank and condition of life have trod there the hard road of penance.

ORIGIN OF THE TITLE.
One may question the title of St Patrick’s Purgatory’ That it was so called because of any similarity between its exercises and the sufferings of the purgatorial state hereafter no one will for a moment admit. A reason for this title Is given in a Louvain Treatise of the 17th century, called the ” Mirror of Penance.” We are there told that St Patrick removed from the distractions of the world in this island and prayed that the pains of purgatory might be revealed to him. His request was granted. St. Patrick was so much awed by this vision, that he ordered henceforth the Island to be made a terrestrial purgatory where sinners could atone for their sins by prayer and fasting- .

SALUTARY INFLUENCE.
Since the days of the National Apostle it has extended Its salutary influence not only to the Celtic race but to pilgrims even from the most distant nations. This sanctuary, still amongst the most noted in Europe, was listed during the ages of the faith by pilgrims not only from every part of these islands, but from France, Spain, Germany, and Austria and even from Italy itself. For centuries past the Holy See has enriched it with many spiritual favours, and to those who perform the pilgrimage it has bestowed a plenary indulgence

A SHRINE OF GREAT ANTIQUITY.
In these days of awakened fervour when the pilgrim spirit has been so amazingly revived in the Church, and when so many leave Ireland journeying to far-off shrines, perhaps this year some people may visit Lough Derg—a shrine within our own boundaries, a shrine of greater antiquity and celebrity, not only one of our proudest glories, but one of the brightest of the religious institutions of Ireland.
(Full details of the pilgrimage, which will leave Limerick on Saturday, June 1st, will be found in an advertisement on page eleven of this Issue).

The Board also decided to ask the athletes selected to represent Kerry in the Munster Cross-Country Championship for an explanation for non-attendance and failure to notify the secretary.

Successful Sports Moyvane
ALTHOUGH the weather was not inviting, a large crowd turned out to watch a, very successful sports meeting at Moyvane on Sunday. All events were efficiently and punctually run off under the supervision of Mr. Liam Brick, who acted as official starter.

The highlights of the day were the victory of Sean Hennessy (Kerins O’Rahillys A.C.) in the l,000 metres Championship of Kerry, and the success of local athlete, T. O’Connor, in the hop, step and jump. The latter, who had pulled a muscle before the event, won with a jump of 41 ft, 3 ins,

Kilgarvan Sports a great success
ALTHOUGH weather conditions later improved, a heavy downpour early in the day affected the attendance at Kilgarvan Sports on Sunday. A record number of athletes competed.

LIXNAW: The death, at an advanced age, recently occurred of Miss Annie Stack of Deerpark. Deceased, who had been a retired National Teacher having taught for many years at Coolard National School, was a native of Ballyconry but was resident for some years past with her nephew, Mr. Eddie Stack of Deerpark.(Break)
Among the many visitors at present enjoying a holiday in this area is Very Rev. Richard O’Connell. Fr. O’Connell, who comes from Miles, California, is a native of Ballyhennessy and is brother of Mother M. Ignatius and Sr. M, Eymaid of the Presentation Convent, Castleisland, and Messrs. Michael, Maurice and Jeremiah O’Connell of Ballyhennessy, Clandouglas and Banemore (Break).

Listowel; The death took place at her home in Brighton, England, on Saturday last of Mrs. Aggie Murphy. She was daughter of the late Mr. John and Mrs. K Moore, 36 Charles Street, Listowel.
In a recent report of the concert and variety entertainment in aid of the local Lourdes Fund, the name of Mr. Dineen, Irish Dancing Instructor, was inadvertently omitted. At very short notice Mr. Dineen’s pupils gave a splendid exhibition of Irish dancing.
MOYVANE: A SPECIAL ceili was held in the Marian Hall, Moyvane, on Wednesday night at which a large crowd attended. The guests of the night were Mr. Frank J. Thornton and his three sons from Chicago. Mr, Thornton spoke of the high place Irish music held in America and how he, with other Irish Americans, have succeeded in keeping the musical tradition active there. The three sons then gave a fine display of Irish airs and dance tunes on flutes. They were dressed in green, white and gold outfits.
The highlight of the night came when father and three sons were handed over the microphone by the Meade brothers, who are now the resident orchestra there, and they played a reel to which a full hall took the floor. When they concluded with the hornpipe a tremendous burst of handclapping came from all round the hall for the visiting Quartet.
Thanks to Mr. Thornton’s offer, the proceeds of the night went to parish funds.
The annual excursion to Knock Shrine from Moyvane took place on Sunday.
VISITORS, among a heavy influx of visitors to Moyvane at present is Sister Mary Borgia (Mulvihill) of the Incarnate Word and Blessed Sacrament Order, Houston, Texas, She is staying with her brother, Mr. N. Mulvihill, Borrogougeen.

Kerry Team
Following represented the “Kingdom” ;—D, O’Keeffe (goal); J. Barrett, T. Landers, J. J. Landers, M. Doyle, J. Ryan, P. Whitty, M. Regan, Tralee; D. O’Connor. P. Russell, Killarney; J. Walsh, Asdee; J. O’Sullivan, Dingle; C Brosnan (capt.), Moyvane; R. Stack, Ballybunion; E. Fitzgerald, Caherdaniel. This game concluded the second series of Kerry-Kildare tussles, which had put Gaelic football on the map and consolidated its position in after years; the counties, likewise, which had brought the first forty thousand “gate” to Croke Park.It is surprising to note that Kerry and Kildare have never since met in a championship—the long span of twenty years-eight years has passed since the two Ks lined out in the centre of Croke Park, though they have occasionally met in-the League. Kildare always played scientific football in a good sporting spirit. In the 1931 Final it is worthy of note that Jackie Ryan played full-forward in the second half hour and got some scores, one of which is referred to, from far out. This proves that the roaming full forward is not a modern tactic. Furthermore, these matches provided a spate of long range scores, which the forwards of our time are unable to accomplish. Length, combined with accuracy, have gone from the game. For this change the code is all the poorer.
In 1931, also, Kerry won the All Ireland minor final for the first time.

THE Knockanure Drama Players provided a very pleasant night’s entertainment at Moyvane, when they presented two short plays, The Belle of Boulavogue and Fledged and Flown. While all members of the cast performed well, the new ones were very good for their first time. The concert items were well received. The production of both plays was a credit to Miss Mairead O’Callaghan, N.T.
The proud, tradition of Moyvane footballers, especially the Brosnan family, was evident last Sunday at Croke Park, when Jim Brosnan shone in the Kerry v. Derry match. He scored a goal and a, point of Kerry’s total and so helped to secure the team’s passports to the U.S.A.
HOLIDAY OVER; Mr. Patrick Mulvihill has returned to Chicago after a holiday with his parents at Leitrim. LOCAL ENTERTAINMENT: Moyvane and Knockanure Pioneer centres are holding a Maytime extension dance in the Marian Hall, on Wednesday, May 20. There will be a door prize.

Kerryman 1904-current, Saturday, July 18, 1959; Page: 13Aherne wins three Munster titles. Neenan withstood stiff challenge to 1.500 metres
KERRY’S Ras Tailteann cyclist, Dan Aherne, of Castleisland A.C.C., was the hero of Currow Open Sports on Sunday. He competed in every cycle race and won all five. These included the Minister half-mile, 3,000 metres and 5,000 metres championships, as well as the two miles championship of Kerry. He began his afternoon of successes when he won the fifteen miles road race which preceded the sports.
The vast experience of the Castleisland man was evident in every race and all his finishing efforts were perfectly timed. However, he had a close call in the 3,000 metres event. The Tipperary cyclist Pat Barragry was lying dangerously close in the race for the line. But, just when it seemed, that there might be an upset. Aherne produced his powerful finishing burst and held on for a narrow but deserved win. A big disappointment was the non-appearance of the new Irish 1,500 metres champion Tom O’Riordan of Idaho State University, He was due to compete in the 1,500 metres Munster championship. The race was won by Willie Neenan of Millstreet, who held off a determined challenge by former Irish cross-country champion Theo O’Sullivan of Tournafulla.

The two were neck and neck entering the last lap. Then Neenan showed his class -when he moved to the front with a magnificent burst, to finish a comfortable winner.

Other notable feats were the doubles scored by Liam Fitzgerald of St. John’s A.C., Tralee and Tom O’Connor of Moyvane A.C., Fitzgerald won the 100 yards and 220 yards and O’Connor took the long jump and high jump. The Laune Pipers Band, Killorglin, was in attendance.
locals were; 1 Mile—M. O’Connell (Moyvane). Long Jump—T. O’Connor {Moyvane A.C.) 23’ 4″ 1; F. O’Brien (Milltown A.C.) 22′ 7″ 2; C, Murray (St. John’s A.C) 21′ 9″ 3. High jump—T. O’Connor (Moyvane A.C.) t; M. Allen (Rising Sun A.C.) 2. Both jumped 5′ 9″, O’Connor winning on fewer faults.

GIVING a fine exhibition of fast and clever, football, Ballylongford easily accounted for Ballydonoghue in the North Kerry Minor League and maintained their unbeaten record, final score of 2-7 to 0-5 (Break)
The recent spell of fine weather has been fully availed of in the locality. All the hay has been cut and saved and the greater part of it has been drawn home. The bogs have been the scene of much activity and most people have succeeded in getting their turf home.

CREAMERY: Moyvane-Not many of the present suppliers know who started the Moyvane Creamery which now gives us the Gale Valley Milk Products. The site was given by V Rev. Fr. Matthew Dillon, P.P., in 1895. Fr. Dillon who took a keen interest in the progress of the creamery was a grand uncle of the present manager Mr. P. Sugrue. In the early days, the creamery was managed by Mr. Tim Reidy, of Ballymacelligott, uncle of Messrs T. & C. O’Sullivan, Merchants, Ballylongford. The first dairymaid was Mrs. Michael Kearney, Moyvane Village. The other members of the staff in those days were Mr. Billy McGrath, of Claar, who gave out the milk and Mr. Michael Stack, of Kilflynn, who was the fireman. Mr. M. J. Nolan was chairman of the committee and his son Mr. Timothy Nolan is now a member of the committee. Mr. Wm, N. Stack, The Hill, is the third generation to be on the committee. Of the present staff. Mr. Michael Kearney, Moyvane Village, has been fireman for 39 years; Mr. Michael Mulvihill has been asst. manager for 33 years and Mr. T. Mangan has been giving out the milk for 31 years. The dairy-maid is Miss Mary O’Shea from Kilkenny.
WEDDING The marriage took place recently in the Church of the Holy Rosary, Limerick, of Elizabeth, daughter of Mr, and Mrs. Timothy Buckley, Derry, to Robert, son of Mr. Robert and the late Mrs, Maloney The Square, Listowel. (Break)
PILGRIMAGE Nurse Ann Kearney deserve a word of special praise in organising a full bus load of pilgrims to Knock for the fourth time. The pilgrims spent 3 hours at the holy shrine. Amongst those who made the journey was Fr. A. Stack of Tarbert.
THE U.S. CONCERT PARTY; Mr. Frank Thornton and five of his concert performers returned last week to the U.S.A. Both he and his party were delighted with the reception they received everywhere they went and while all halls were filled Listowel was best with two full houses. Even over the Border they were thrilled with the reception. There they displayed the Irish Flag with the American Flag in Armagh and Belfast. In Belfast City Miss J. Hartnett got a great hand for singing Kevin Barry.

Ballymac Sports; (Edited)
The two coveted championship of Kerry titles, the 300 metres and the 4-miIe cycle were won by Christy Murray (St. John’s A.C., Tralee) and Dan Aherne (Castleisland C.C), respectively, at Ballymacelligott Open N.A.C.A. Sports on Sunday,
Murray, though led by Liam Fitzgerald (St. Johns A.C.) rounding the last bend, put in a storming finish and breasted the rape a spectacular five yard winner of the 300 metres event. Murray’s finishing power was again evident in the 100 yards event when, in a terrific sprint to the line he just outpaced Richard Fitzgerald of St. Johns A.C.
Another double was recorded by Aherne, who dominated the cycling scene. Along with annexing the 4 mile county title, he won the 3 mile event, relegating Mick Murphy, also of Castleisland C.C., into second place on both occasions.
Sean Hennessy, Kerins O’Rahilly A.C., won the mile flat event. He defeated Moss Connell of Moyvane and thus confirmed his recent Scartaglin mile victory over the same athelete.
R. Fitzgerald, second in the 100 yards, tied with T. O’Connor of Moyvane in the Long Jump, each had a leap of 21′ 6”. Fitzgerald was declared the winner on the toss of a coin. (see paper for details)

THE Knockanure annual Sports and Pattern held on Saturday August I5, was an outstanding success, and the largest attendance ever went treated to a great day’s sport. Liam Fitzgerald, St. Johns C.C., Tralee, scored a double when he won the 100 yards and 220 yards open; Michael O’Sullivan , Tournafulla, 9 miles County Senior Champion, won the one mile open race, and the young promising Abbeyfeale athlete, Sean O’Connell won the high jump.

Moyvane
BETWEEN 25 and 30 people pass up and down the street each forenoon with tanks, buckets and baths filled with water for all purposes. Latest development is the problem of laundering, as the water from the only, available supply is extremely “hard” as well as being a considerable distance away.
GREAT ATHLETIC MEETING A highly successful, meeting under N.A.C.A. rules was held at Moyvane on Sunday. While many outstanding athletes competed, local talent again proved its worth against strong opposition. Foremost was T. O’Connor, who added three further trophies to his large collection, although competing under a severe handicap. Tommy, as he is-known to all, is the holder of the high jump and hop step and jump county championship of Kerry for the past six years. He also held the hop, step and jump championship of Minister in 1956 and was runner-up for it in 1957, being beaten by only a half inch. For four years he also held the long jump championship of Kerry. CHAMPION YOUTH
Maurice O’Connell, although 6ft. 2ins., is yet in his teens. He has brought many county championships to Moyvane. On Sunday, he added the youths (under 20 years) and three miles senior championship of Kerry to his previous list.
Against eight competitors, D. Sheehan secured second place in the hop, step and jump, which was an open event.
John O’Connor was another second to his brother in the high jump, for which six competed. MEDALLIST ASSISTED
Assisting the county officials at the sports was Garda M. O’Dwyer. He was an athlete of high-class performance as he cleared 6ft. 3.3ins. and represented Ireland in the same event at London in 1929. He is the holder of a Tailteann medal for 1932.
Garda O’Dwyer was also a star hurdler, as can be seen from the number of trophies on his sideboard. After eight years active duty in Moyvane he is deservedly popular.
POOL WINNER; Mr. Daniel Kearney, M.I.A.A., had a fine win in a Charity Pools, for which he receives a cheque for £90. His daughter, Mairead, won £114 in a 6d. pool only a few months ago.

MURPHY’S FINE DOUBLE AT CASTLEISLAND SPORTS
MICK MURPHY, of Castleisland C.C., struck his best track form this season when he annexed a fine cycling double at Castleisland Sports last Sunday, He set such a gruelling pace in the 4-Milc Cycle Championship of Munster that the large starting field eventually dwindled to three.

A KERRY County Board motion that the N.A.C.A. select a team to represent all Ireland at the Olympics in Rome, sparked off a lively discussion at the annual Congress of the N.A.C.A. in Cork on Sunday.
The motion was later withdrawn and it was decided that the General Council would consider a suggestion to send a suitable representative to Rome to explain Ireland’s position to the representative of the various other countries.
The Congress felt that the Kerry motion was not acceptable on the grounds that it would serve no purpose because an Irish team would not be admitted to the Olympic stadium and would incur expense which the Association could not afford. One of the Kerry delegates, Mr. T. Crowley, said that the motion was prompted by a letter sent to Dr. Eamon O’Sullivan, President of the Kerry County Board, from Kenmare-born New York Attorney. Mr. Frank O’Connor.

He graduated in University College, Cork, with first class honours, and acted as locum tenens in Bunmahon, Co.

He was a nominator for the Irish Coursing Cup, and only last week his nomination Bawnard Boy won the Irish Purse at Clounanna. On several other occasions his nomination succeeded in reaching the final stages of the Cup.

OVER THE ICE TO MASS Adventurous Life Among The Eskimoes. By Father Tom Cunningham, SJ.
TRAVEL in Alaska is dangerous. Even when you hitch up your dog team for as short trip as ten miles you never know for sure that you will get there. You might meet with rubbery ice, soft snow, open water, blizzards, steep banks, wolves, frozen limbs, dog fights and many other incidentals peculiar to Alaskan travel.
But if you take the advice of the old men you will be safe. They know from years of experience just what to expect and how to overcome the difficulties, and they take a pleasure in expounding to the new-comers the Knowledge gained during years of Arctic winters.

By Gabriel Fitzmaurice
“Like a dog and its master,
Like a ship on the water, I need you, you bitch, Newtown. I need you, you bitch, Newtown.”

Thus ends a poem I wrote many years ago about my native place. The poem was called “Lovers.” When questioned (in the pub — where else?) about the title, I replied rather cockily, expounding: “love is a conflict.” I suppose I meant by that that when two interests clash, one inevitably is in conflict.
The sentiments expressed in the above poem are very much a young man’s sentiments. A young man facing up to the consequences of his choices. I had chosen to live in “Newtown” in 1975, believing it to be still the village of my childhood. (See paper for full story)

Richard (White) -1851), 1st Earl of Bantry, Bantry House (bought 1730 from Hutchinsons as Blackrock House) Pre 1831, 1822, Created Baron White for his part in alerting British of French landing at Bantry Bay 1797, 1801 advance to Viscount Berehaven 1816 created 1st Earl of Bantry. 1799 married Margaret Hare, daughter of William Hare, Earls of Listowel (they had been Cork provision merchants). Subscriber 1821 Dr Thomas Wood’s ‘Primitive Inhabitants of Ireland. 1822 seeking support from Lord Lieutenant for Bridewell and market House in Bantry. Notified as Magistrate of Catholic Meeting on Loyalty to King 1825. Correspondence with Chief Secretary promoting road Bantry to Skibbereen, sitting Bantry, 1835, listed 1838, Quarter Sessions, Bantry 1842. Receiver appointed to Estate rents 1837 on a charge of £46,150. Member provisional Committee projected Bandon to Bantry Railway 1845. The Irish House of Lords Journal recorded the introduction of White as Lord Bantry in Cork ‘Richard White, Esq. being by letters patent dated 24th day of March 1799 created Baron Bantry of Bantry on the County of Cork, was this day, the 22nd Jan 1799, in his robes, introduced between Lord Tyrawley, and the Lord Mock also in their robes; the Yeoman Usher of the Black Rod and Ulster King of Arms, in his coat of arms, carrying the said letters patent preceding: his lordship presented the same to the Lord Chancellor.

The references to Miss McCarthy and the Ursulines in the enquiry is the case of Alexander McCarthy, an intestate Cork butter merchant. He died leaving £80,000 probably the equivalent of €100 million nowadays. Leaving no will, the McCarthy sons, not being happy with their share, commenced an action against the Ursuline Convent in Blackrock where their sister was a nun. Their father had given the convent £1,000 as her dowry. For someone of social status the norm was £400 but he also wanted some form of schooling for the poor. The case went from the Consistory Court all the way to the House of Lords in London. That Court finding for the brothers on the ground that Sister McCarthy did not have a legal personality as she was some kind of dupe to the Reverend Mother. The case caused outrage in Cork in Catholic circles.

Apart from these immediate family issues, it throws up the staggering wealth of the Catholic merchants. In the mid 18th century the provisioning trade to the Colonies and to the British Army and Navy was controlled by the Hoares, Hares (Later Lord Listowel) and various Quaker House of Pike, Beale, Penrose. By 1800 the bulk of the trade lay with the Catholic Houses of McCarthy, Callaghan, Fagan, Sugrue, Daly and others. They also took advantage of their Continental networks. The most remote townland in West Cork was involved in this trade of butter, pigs and cattle. Daniel O’Connell in Parliament gave evidence in 1828 stated that the bulk of the deposits and shareholdings at the Bank of Ireland was held by Catholics, having ben debarred by the Penal Laws from land.
The Rev Kyle said the all the Proctors were Protestant as well as the Advocates. However at least two senior Catholic Barristers Joseph Scannell and Francis Walsh appeared regularly.

Charles Haughey and Roger Hayes a reforming duo at the Department of Justice 1959-1964, the Succession Act influence of the Brehon Laws outrage to the threat to the integrity of the family farm and the threat to ‘Women of certain age’

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Haughey#Minister_for_Justice

The public sins of Charlie Haughey are well known and ventilated. A lesser episode in the career of this complex character is his tenure at the Department of Justice. Firstly as 2 years as Parliamentary Secretary to Oscar Traynor and as full Minister for around two years from October 1961. There is a road in north Dublin called after Traynor.

Traynor was an elderly cadre veteran like many in FF/FG of the War of Independence and Civil War. Like many of his confreres he ruled a rigid unyielding Department over one of the microstates of Ireland post partition. The Department in the 1950s was involved in holding the line in the IRA 1950s campaign a tame affair compared to what came later.

Haughey as well as having a business degree and being a qualified accountant was a qualified barrister but did not practice. He arrived into the Department and soon made his mark. A later Secretary Peter Berry said that he just got better and better the longer he stayed.

He formed an alliance with Roger Hayes the then Assistant Secretary and encouraged him on the route to Legal Reform. He would later drft many pieces of reforming legislation. He also drafted to civil Liability Act drawing on the work of Glanville Williams which was acknowledged. Hayes was later to become Chairman of the Law Reform Commission.

To get a picture of the legal landscape of 1950s Ireland an article by the Listowel Solicitor Robert Pearse paints a less than flattering picture. He studied law in UCD there were probably no full time Law Lecturers, lectures were at 9 or 5 to suit the practising barristers. His Professor of Criminal Law was Paddy McGilligan earlier Minister for Finance who sponsored the Shannon Scheme.

The Constitution lay dormant Dicey with his book on the ‘unwritten’ English Constitution held sway before John Kelly’s seminal book and Brian Walsh’s Judicial Activism in the 1960s.

There were no Irish Law textbooks and Pease recalls using the then standard English tome on the subject. The chapters of sexual crime were coming up and McGilligan told them to skip those as they never came up in the exams. Some time later in private practice he realised that he and others like him had no knowledge as qualified lawyers of sexual crime.

Before the advent of Wylie on Irish Land Law the only text books were those like Popham in the pre 1926 editions when the Land Law Reforms of England took place. I recall getting a copy of this book in Wildys in London the Law Bookshop.

Haughey was interested in reforming the law on Succession and tried to incorporate aspects of the Brehon Law into the first Succession Bill. As well as making compulsory provision for the spouse which endured there was a provision to provide a third for the children. This and the legal spouse right caused outrage as it was felt it interfered with the right of testator to dispose and could endanger the integrity of family farms. Eventually Haughey left for the Department of Finance and Brian Lenihan steered the diluted Bill through.

On the issue of spouse being gender neutral there were ominous warnings from FG Deputies that it endangering ‘women of a certain age’. It is noteworthy it is the gender neutral phrase of ‘spouse’ that was used.

This would have been a time of great war induced prosperity.

These grants were shortly after purchased by the first Earl of Cork, who may be justly styled the founder of the town. Through him, the Earls of Cork and Shannon, and the Duke of Devonshire, possess property in the town and neighbourhood. The Earl of Bandon is also a proprietor, but the principal part of his property is in Kerry and in the western part of the county. The Bernard family have always been esteemed good landlords and kind to their tenantry. The following extract from an original letter written by his agent to the Lord Bandon, of April 23rd, 1793, preserved among the papers of Wm. T. Crosbie, Esq., of Ardfert Abbey, county Kerry, will afford a good idea of what an ” Irish tenant gala ” was at the close of the last century :

” None who were not tenants did I invite, except those named by you, viz., Father Morgan Flaherty, Tim M’Carthy, Charles Casey, Doctor Leyne, and Father Nelan, son to Old John. These I asked as Catholics particularly attached to you. Had I gone further I must either Lave excited jealousy, or summoned half the country. We had a company of 22 in the parlour, of whom I will send you a list next post. In the breakfast-parlour there was another company of second rate, and the third rate dined in the tent pitched in the avenue near the abbey. In the parlour your claret was made free with, as Stephen tells me he opened 34 bottles. In the breakfast-parlour port wine and rum-punch were supplied in abundance, and abroad large libations of whiskey-punch. We had two quarter casks (above 80 gallons) of that beverage, made the day before, which was drawn off unsparingly for those abroad, and plenty of beer besides. Two patteraroes, borrowed from Jack Collis, and placed on the top of the abbey tower, announced our dinner, toasts, and our exultation. Pipers and fiddlers enlivened the intervals between the peals of the ordnance. The May-men and maids, with their hobby horse, danced most cheerfully, and were all entertained at dinner, and with drink in abundance. An ox was roasted whole at one end of the turf house, on a large ash beam, by way of a spit, and turned with a wheel well contrived by Tom O’Brien. It was cut up from thence, and divided as wanting. The name of its being roasted entire was more than if two oxen had been served piecemeal. Six sheep were also sacrificed on the occasion, and, in short, plenty and hospitality graced both your board and your sod ; and a fine serene evening favoured happily the glee and hilarity of the meeting. All was happiness, mirth, and good humour. God save great George our king was cheered within and abroad, accompanied with fiddles, pipes, &c., &c.”

It appears that you have several pages with regards to the 1821 census for the parishes of Kinneigh and Murragh, other than the ones featured. Is there any information with regard to the Moore family? My 3rd great grandfather Henry Moore lived in this time period and I have records showing his son William was involved in the Parish of Kinneigh in the 1860s.

Four years ago I wrote about the fishing industry that once flourished on the shores of Roaringwater Bay (and around much of the west coast of Ireland): according to extant records it was active before 1500, and probably had its heyday in the seventeenth century, when it was heavily invested in by the Great Earl of Cork (Richard Boyle, sometimes described as ‘the richest man in the known world’). In those days, pilchards were the main catch: huge shoals of them came to the comparatively warm, sheltered waters of the islands during the summer months, along with other oily fish such as herring and mackerel. Seine boats were commonly used for this enterprise. Today, pilchards are rare: through a combination of overfishing and changing climate, the bountiful shoals no longer appear.

3. Mental health and the State

Until the 19th century the custody of ‘idiots’ and ‘lunatics’, as well as the ownership of their land and property, fell to the Crown. Before the establishment of lunatic asylums in the mid-19th century, pauper lunatics were dealt with locally under poor law, vagrancy law or criminal law. They were therefore likely to end up in workhouses, houses of correction or prisons.

Wealthier people had to make private arrangements for the care of family members with a mental illness. Private ‘madhouses’ were licensed by the justices of the peace, and were examined by several series of government commissioners.

The County Asylums Act of 1808 encouraged justices of the peace to build county lunatic asylums to house any pauper lunatics in their county. However, the response was slow and many patients continued to end up in prisons and workhouses.

Under the Lunacy Act 1845 and the County Asylums Act of the same year, county lunatic asylums became compulsory and the Lunacy Commission was established to take responsibility, among other things, to regulate them.

The 1890 Lunacy Act gave asylums a wider role, and wealthier patients began to be admitted.

Folios 47-49. Letter from Richard Gould, Henry Farrington and William Cooper, Manchester churchwardens, to the Poor Law Commissioners. The churchwardens have read Mr Nicholls publication on the state of the Irish poor, being aware that large donations are given to the mendicant poor particularly as charity equal to a well directed poor rate. They are anxious for information on the subject and state they are apprehensive that the plan to administer no relief, except in workhouses, will add greatly to an already over burdened population of indigent Irish families. They require guidance as to whether Irish families which have become a burden to the town, and compelled to be removed to Ireland, can maintain themselves or will be supported by their friends and the community in that country. But, if not, whether such families if passed to Ireland would be in worse condition than this country receiving a weekly pittance as they do now; or whether any arrangement could be made on their arrival in Ireland through any local charitable institutions for relief? The churchwardens and overseers wish to guard against any acts of severity in relief administration but to effectively provide for so many cases of destitute Irish poor as present themselves with no legal claim. They ask the Commissioners to consider the subject before measures are considered for Parliament. There is an appendix concerning two case studies of families: those of Richard Dooley and William Waugh.

Folios 549-551. Memorial, signed by Robert Moore and Thomas Woolley, addressed to Edwin Chadwick, secretary, for attention of the Poor Law Commissioners, at the particular concern for numerous unemployed found begging who are unable to obtain parochial relief. Their investigations found severe cases of families having no visible means of obtaining food, having sold almost every possession including clothing and had become wholly reliant on casual charity, being mostly Irish handloom weavers having lived in Manchester for various periods varying between eighteen and forty years. Their attempt to obtain relief were often in vain and complaints against the relieving officer, William Howard, were almost universal, having refused relief to applicants and prevented appeals to guardians, neglected medical advice in such cases, used intimidation to deter parishioners requesting relief, even serious cases. The memorialists appeal for an enquiry and they call for Howard’s dismissal

Content: Folios 357-358. Letter from Sir John Walsham [Assistant Poor Law Commissioner] to the Poor Law Commission. The letter commends the initiative of [Patrick Hogg], Porter of Berwick-upon-Tweed Workhouse, and an old soldier, in devising a record book of vagrant paupers. He does this firstly because he considers it could usefully be adopted in other unions ‘infested’ with vagrants; secondly he asks the Commissioners to write to the clerk to Berwick-upon-Tweed Board of guardians signifying their approval of the porter’s zeal and intelligence. He encloses one page of the book as an example. Names and Description of casual poor relieved by Berwick-upon-Tweed Union from 23 Mar 1840 to 26 Jul 1840.

The national flag and a flagpole were presented to the principal, Mr Joseph Linnane, by Kit Ahern on behalf of the friends. The flag will be flown in future to mark major school events. At first hand pupils will be made aware of the symbolism and the protocol surrounding the meaning and the proper usage of national flags. Present at the ceremony were Fr Martin Hegarty, PP, chairperson and members of the Board, Padraig Uas 0 Donnabhain, Cigire Scoileanna, members of the parish committee, the Friends of Maurice Walsh representatives, teachers and pupils of the school The event was recorded by Mr John Lynch and Dillon Boyer for the Ballydonoghue Parish archives.

DUNBLANE MASSACRE: A wonderful friendship exists between the sorrowing community in Dunblane, Scotland and the people of Ballydonoghue, Scarcely two years ago the Friends of Maurice Walsh were lavishly entertained by members of the Stirling Literary Society in the warm and welcoming home of Kathleen Hardie (nee Cleary) of Ballyline, who lives in Dunblane. Among those who sang and played very beautiful Scottish songs and melodies were parents of children attending the local primary school.

Successful tour for Ceol Chiarrai group
Sir — Having just returned from a trip to the USA with Ceol Chiarrai I would like to share my thoughts with your readers. I was overwhelmed by the kindness and, hospitality we received from, the Irish, people living in, Boston, New York, Chicago, Milwaukee, San, Francisco, Los Gates and Los Angeles. The Irish people have always been known for their hospitality, but I think that one has to visit the Irish communities abroad to witness this hospitality at its best. I would like to offer my sincere gratitude to all the people who met us at the airports, laid on meals for us and provided us with accommodation. I would love to mention the names of all the people who helped us, but this is not possible. The second point I would like to make concerns the performers in Ceol Chiarrai. These young people range in age from 16 to 21 years. Their behaviour throughout this trip was an example to all young people. During the interval and after the shows they mingled and chatted with their audiences and this was spoken about by many of the people present. The comment I most often heard was: – “These young people are great ambassadors for Ireland” I do not have to tell you, about their musical talents as most of you will have seen them in concert. They are a credit to their parents, Ceol Chiarrai and Ireland. Finally I would like to compliment Martina Morgan, Dillon Boyer, the man himself Michael Carr for the tremendous work that they are doing. Anyone who thinks that they are having a great time touring the world is greatly mistaken. I can assure them that the lifestyle they have on tour is far removed from most people’s idea of a holiday.
May I take this opportunity to wish Ceol Chiarrai every success and many more successful tours in the years ahead.
Sincerely Sean Stack.
Limerick House, Ballybunion.

IMAGINE travelling thousands of miles away on a holiday and never visiting a single pub during the entire trip — doesn’t that sound unusual for a group of Irish people. Well, that’s exactly what happened to a group of 53 people from Listowel. who recently participated in an exchange visit to their twin town of Panissieres in France And guess what — they had an absolute ball. As chairman of the twinning committee Michael Guerin told me, going to the pub is simply not part of the culture of this particular area of France. But that’s not to say that these people aren’t sociable or that they don’t like their drink — it’s just that they prefer to do it In each other’s houses instead, of visiting pubs.
All 53 people in the Listowel group stayed with host families In Panissieres and they were treated wonderfully. Every evening during the trip the group gathered in the house of one of the host families, and the eating, drinking and talking went on, all night, never leaving the table.
The days were organised around visits to some of the most interesting and historic places in the Le Rhone region. They had picnics in the open air every day and got to attend wine tasting sessions In the local vineyard. They also went on a guided tour of the old part of Lyon and took a boat trip on the rivers Saone and Rhone.
For the French national day on July 14, all the Listowel visitors were in the town square to watch the French, and Irish flags being raised, on the town church.
Both twinning committees met on various occasions, and discussed problems common to both towns, in particular rural decline, the European elections and student exchange programmes. The council in, Panissieres is at an advanced stage in building a Lartigue monorail project and Is very anxious that Listowel will join them in applying for Transnational Leader funding.

During the trip, the two groups also held a joint photographic exhibition which attracted great attention. The Listowel twinning committee presented a photograph, mounted on canvas, of St John’s in The Square, which was a, gift from Listowel UDC to the Mayor of Panissieres, Madame Veillon. This beautiful picture was painted by Dillon Boyer who was also on the trip.
Listowel is now in its tenth year of twinning with Panissieres and the whole process is going from strength to strength, In that many families participated this year. Listowel people are even visiting the area outside of the official visits and, the students exchange programmes.

Joan’s impressive Golf drive from Moyvane 2000.
(Break)
What a way to start the new year! Joan won this wonderful prize in the Moyvane 2000 draw, definitely the most attractive draw I’ve heard about in a long time.
You see, the Moyvane people have realised what many other committees and fund-raisers should have learned by now: bottles of whiskey and tins of biscuits are all very fine, but when it comes to coaxing people to part with their hard-earned cash, there’s nothing quite as attractive as a chance of winning a car or a large wad of cash.
Anne Marie Kennelly of the Moyvane 2000 committee tells me that their draw will run every month up to and including October, and the mouth-watering array of prizes includes a Volkswagen Polo, a Toyota Yaris, a Renault Clio and the top prize, which is a Suzuki two-litre turbo diesel, is probably worth a frightening amount of money.
There’s an attractive number of prizes up for grabs every month — the March prizes, for instance, include £5,000 in cash or a Honda quad. In total, there are 13 prizes to be won every month.
Anne Marie also tells me that one of the January prizes of £500 in cash went to a winner in Falkirk in Scotland, so it’s obviously attracting quite a lot of interest. The committee hope to eventually raise £75,000 to build a community hall in Moyvane — more about that next week.
If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning one of these prizes, the good news is that there’s a limited number of tickets available. Give Anne Marie a call on (068) 49351 or mobile (087) 8555639.
And by the way, happy motoring to Joan Buckley in her new Golf!

TV crew filming Last Light of the millennium
Thought you’d heard the last about Listowel’s millennium ceremony, but as I found out this week, it was actually local man Dillon Boyer behind the camera.

Dillon took it upon himself to film the prayer service in the Church; the ‘Last light’ ceremony in The Square on the afternoon of new year’s eve; the wrenboy concert in The Square that night, and the fireworks display at midnight.
He also got up at the crack of dawn to film the first sunlight of the 21st century coming up over Cnoc an Fhomhair. There’s a man with initiative. Anyone who missed all the celebrations — and I believe quite a few people were in bed with the ‘flu — might like to buy a copy of Dillon’s video, which can be purchased from either McKenna’s or Danny Hannon’s. If you’d like to see a sneak preview, stroll by McKenna’s some time and watch it on one of the display televisions. Copies can also be bought by calling Dillon on (068) 22182.
When he’s not out capturing moments of history for posterity on video, Dillon tells me he’s busy working on the Great Book of Kerry project with Sean Quinlan from Ballyduff.

STUNNING images from the canyons in the south-western states of America to French rural landscapes brightened the walls of St John’s Arts Centre this weekend for the opening of a new exhibition by Listowel photographer Dillon Boyer.

A native of Kent, now resident in Listowel over 20 years, the images in exhibition ‘Travels with a Camera’ were taken over the past three years during a number of trips Dillon made around the globe. “They are just simple images I took in places like Yellowstone National Park, the canyons of the south-western states, France and so on. I go each year on a tour with a professional photographer who selects a good location and the optimum times of year for visiting in terms of getting interesting images.”
The exhibition opened to a great reception on Saturday night and will run until the end of September. The shots reflect Dillon’s penchant for the natural and unadorned.
“I don’t use filters or anything like that, I’m kind of old-fashioned in that I just like to take simple photographs with no frills. This exhibition is more about people coming to browse and enjoy the scenery as I’m not looking to make a huge amount of money in sales. If I get enough to cover my costs I’ll be happy,” he said.
Some of Dillon’s images can also be seen on http://www.clownfishphoto.co.uk, a website ranked the world’s second best by Getty Images.

Society of snappers put on picture perfect exhibition, BY DÓNAL NOLAN
Picture; Andrea Thorton admires one of the photographs that she modelled for in St. John Theatre as part of an exhibition of photography by North Kerry Photographic Society members. The exhibition runs runs until October 31.
LOCAL photographers made a colourful show of themselves at St John’s in Listowel on Monday night with the opening of an exhibition of their work as part of the North Kerry and District Photographic Society.
Stunning shots of herons in take-off, still life’s and portraits adorn the walls of St John’s as part of the exhibition that runs until the end of the month.
“We were delighted with the opening by Mayor of Kerry Tim Buckley on Monday night, it went really well and the photographs look fantastic,” society secretary Marie Rohan told The Kerryman.
“We have about 40 members today and the society is open to everybody. We meet on Monday nights at 7.45pm in the Listowel Family Resource Centre and photographer John Stack runs classes there at the same time for everybody from beginners to the more advanced. It doesn’t matter if people have a compact or an SLR camera as everyone with an interest can join.”
The society was formed in the 90s, but after a hiatus was reignited by the late Fiona O’Connor and her husband Jerry along with John Stack, Dillon Boyer and Tom Fitzgerald.
The weekly meetings cover most aspects of photography, from practical demonstrations to illustrated talks and judging by the work on show in St John’s have really taken members through their paces.

Picture; Members of Le Chéile outside their Arts and Crafts centre in Ballybunion. (From left) Mary Boyer, Peggy Casey, Dillon Boyer, Carina Sayers, Neville Sayers, Jessica Hilliard and Catherine Keane.
A GROUP of enterprising north Kerry craftspeople have come up with a clever way of displaying their wares at minimal cost, by turning a vacant premises in Ballybunion into a showroom and shop.
The aptly named Atlantic Creations group have recently developed Le Chéile Arts and Crafts Centre at Main Street, Ballybunion, where over 15 members showcase and sell their crafts on a part-time basis.

The centre, which is located at the former Higginsbottom pub premises near Super Valu, is currently open from 11am to 5pm from Saturday to Monday and from 3pm to 7pm on Thursdays. It is hoped that once more people come on board and volunteer to help out, the centre will extend those opening hours.
At present, the centre offers crafts ranging from knitting and crochet work to, jewellery, art and paintwork, photographs, wood turning and frames. The centre also houses a community stand featuring works by groups such as the Causeway Men’s Shed and the Ballybunion Active Retired Group.
Group member Jessica Hilliard said the centre is a massive boost to crafts people from all over north Kerry and also provides a one stop shop for the public who are interested in seeing the crafts on offer in the area. The centre is now inviting additional craftspeople to rent a space, with those interested asked to call either Jessica on 086 3700459 or fellow members Neville on 086 0739290 or Carina on 086 1788051. The group also hopes to offer workshops and classes in areas like jewellery making, family history, photography, flower arranging, art and mosaics and those interested in taking any of the classes should get in touch.
The group will also be holding daily drop-in arts and crafts, jewellery making and paper craft workshops for five to 12 year olds for the Halloween mid-term break (Saturday, October 26 to Sunday, November 3) for €5 per child.
