Fondest greetings dear listeners and I wish you all the very best on this wet and calm Tuesday morning. The last one in September.

A very successful, 3day,  all Ireland Pony Cross Country event was held here over the weekend. It’s a three part program comprising of Dressage and Show jumping at the Green Glens and Cross Country over the plains of Drishane.

And the good news is that Drishane has been booked to host the 2016 European FEI Junior Show jumping Championships for young riders and children.

This weekend the Green Glens will be the nerve centre of the 100th year of Mighty Cork 20 International Car Rally. [read more …] “Regional Report 1237 – 30th October 2014”

Roots Query in the Millstreet Area

Historic pictureI am trying to trace a Jeremiah ( Jerry) Kelleher who lived in Millstreet or surrounding area before he left for America approx early 1900s. No further info re his home address is known.

He married Hannah Desmond from Cobra, Clondrohid ( my grand aunt) and they lived in 84 Forest Ave., Brockton, MA., USA.

They had a family of four ( all deceased), Eleanor, Joseph, Lillian ( RIP 1997) and Margaret. Jeremiah died in USA pre 1942.

Their Great Grand Daughter is visiting Ireland in the next two weeks ( 1st Oct 2014) and we would love to trace Jerry’s Millstreet roots and relations, anyone with any info please e-mail rogerosullivan or phone 087-2207491

Attached photo is Jeremiah and Hannah.

Many Thanks.

Roger O’Sullivan, Farran, Co.Cork………..We thank Roger for this query and would encourage anyone who may have relevant information to make contact with him. (S.R.)
