I shall be over in Millstreet on 4th/5th May, tending to my Nans grave.
One of my aunts has sent me a photo of a plaque in Drishane cemetery and would like some more information, it is for a Charles Chenery Justice, who we believe died in early 1879. I’m hoping that I could meet up with someone who could enlighten me.

Millstreet has emerged from one of its busiest weekends ever.
The Millstreet Welcome Tour, equestrian event which brought horses and horsey people from all over the country since April 2nd was an outstanding success. The Eventing on the planes of Drishane is proving very popular and is drawing the crowds.
