Volume I of Dúchas: The Duhallow Historical Journal will be launched at 8pm on Saturday, 23 July. The launch will take place in the recently refurbished Cultúrlann Mhic Amhlaoibh, Newmarket, the beautiful new venue located in the old Protestant church in the town. The journal contains fifteen contributions, twelve of which are in English and three in Irish. Among the contributors are a mixture of local authors and university academics. The history and folklore of Duhallow and its hinterland are the focus. Places touched upon include, but are not confined to, Ballydaly, Ballydesmond, Banteer, Castlemagner, Clara, Clonmeen, Cullen, Donaghmore, Drishane, Dromagh, Dromtarriff, Kanturk, Knocknagree, Liscahane, Millstreet, Nadd, Rathcoole and Tullylease. Contributions are currently being sought for volume II, which it is hoped will appear in 2023.

During lockdown I trawled the British newspaper archive for items re my native Freemount area in the 1800’s . I have copies of a no of reported incidents and happenings saved. I can forward some if given an e-mail add. I’m not sure if they would be of interest to journal readers , sure editor would be best judge
