Denis Lucey and Nora O’Connell

My maternal grandparents — Dennis Anthony Lucey and Nora O’Connell — were born in County Cork. Dennis’ birth may be August 1, 1869 at Horsemount, Kilcarney in Millstreet while Nora’s birth is approximately 1871 in Macroom. Dennis’ parents may be John Lucey and Hannah Toomey. I will be coming to Cork this June and it would be a pleasure to discover family connections, so any suggestions, clues or leads in this search will be greatly appreciated.
Dennis and Nora met in San Francisco, California and married in approximately 1900.

Michael’s Superb Presentation at Boherbue’s “Music Room”

It was Michael Cronin who presented a truly excellent programme of music and song with special emphasis on the 1960s and 1970s – at “The Music Room” in Boherbue on Thursday, 1st February – Feast of St. Brigid and on a night of the very impressive “blue moon” which I visually captured on the way home!

Presenter Michael Cronin is pictured at centre with CD in hand joined by just some of the very large audience who enjoyed the very best of music and song. Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)
