From the top of Musheramore

Caherbarnagh, Clara, and the Brandon Mountains on the horizon in the haze. Taken from Musheramore, by William Glasgow Howe, a member of one of a number of group of walkers that passed this way over the Duhallow Way in the last few days. (16th April 2015). Click the photo to see more from their walk.

Speaking of being on the top mountains, the annual Clara Mountain Run is on tomorrow (Sunday) evening at 7pm starting at the West End. The race is open to all, and full race details are on

Bob Kelly

Bob Kelly died on the 4th April here in Corby, Northamptonshire. He was aged 74. He came from Bantry but he worked in Millstreet in the early 60s (I think he was a mechanic at Lucys garage). He played football with the Millstreet football team and I’m sure there are some people who will remember him. He stayed with the Burkes in Murphy’s Terrace. Tommy will remember him. His wife is Rose. She comes from Cork city. Her grandmother was a teacher in Shrone school back in the late 40s, early 50s.

With thanks to Donal O’Regan (formerly from Ballydaly) for this notice
