The funeral takes place today of John Mc Loughlin Tullamore who was Rose Ryan's father.
May he rest in peace.
Ard Chiarain held an Open Day yesterday for the Moore Parish.
The visiting Wisconsin group who are staying at Castledaly Manor were delighted with the sunshine and dry conditions for their visit to Clonmacnois and Shannonbridge yesterday as there had been a lot of wind and rain since their arrival on Wednesday for their week stay. One of the party told us that it is very cold back in Wisconsin at this time.
Another cloudy and sunny day today with a few light showers thrown in. A northerly wind will reduce the temperature to 7C or 45F.
Group of visitors from Sneem stopped off in Shannonbridge yesterday and Louis Darcy was saying that The Stone Outside Dan Murphy's Door is located outside a pub in Sneem.
Glad to hear from Peggy McLaughlin from Boston who tells us that she is a second cousin and that she has collected information on the Killeen family who emigrated to America at the time of the Famine.
Peggy's great-grandmother was Kate Killeen, born in Ardnaglug, Moore, Roscommon.
Yesterday in the O'Byrne Cup football match Laois trained by Mick O Dwyer had a convincing win over Westmeath, trained by the other Kerryman Paidi O Shea.
Two more lots of people have donated books to the Library. Pat and Rose and Emmett would like to see more people use the library and they say that the section of the library set up for the young people is getting very little use. How about coming along on Thursday night from 7 to 9 pm.
Heard that Paul Kerrigan the authority writer on the Martello Fortifications visited Shannonbridge yesterday with Christy Cunniffe who himself has accumulated an amount of historical facts and data on the area.
