Kilfinane Historical Society Launch Journal Volume 6

 

Minister Deenihan launched the Kilfinane-Coshlea Historical Journal, Volume 6 which again is a compilation of many stories of local heritage. The volume contains fulsome tributes to Roger O’Donnell and Michael J. Hennessy, an article recalling the Famine of Black 47. The history of Kilfinane 1798-1923 is treated in the volume while a story of great interest to Kilfinane is a look at a list of the shops, pubs and businesses in the area in the 1950s and 60s. Among other interesting articles are a look back at the halcyon days of Kilfinane Autumn Festival, the folklore of Ballinlyna, a nostalgic look at the dancehalls in Ballyhoura Country in the 1950s and 60s, Maurice Brazzill of Martinstown and his phenomenal love of the Olympics, the Ballinvana Stakers, Fr. John Ryan and many more.
