I was wondering if someone might please be able to help me?
My name is Helen Sagan and I live in Australia. I understand it is not your job to do family history research for anyone who might happen to ask, but I am looking for some very specific local history information regarding the Rockite movement of 1822 and I thought you might best be able to assist or direct me.
I am researching my husbands Walsh family tree, on the Kerry side of the Blackwater, in-fact I visited your library back in 2011 and spent many pleasant hours looking through the Casey Collection.
At present I am investigating two brothers Healy, Tadj(Timothy?) and Liam(William?) that were executed on 10th August 1822 (along with 3 others) and have their names inscribed upon a monument erected at Shinnagh Cross, Rathmore. I believe these brothers to be my husband’s Uncles and would sincerely love more information on them.
Most recently I discovered the Duchas School books (a truly marvellous & enlightening collection!) which introduced me to tales of old local people during the 1930’s, recalling stories their grandparents would have told them, some about the Whiteboy uprising and precisely the 1822 murder of William Brereton and the subsequent events that resulted in and around Rathmore.

It’s unlikely that Castleisland has ever had a serious potter of its own.
One who made pots and plates and jugs and mugs for the people of the locality.
The nearest we’ve ever had were ‘earthenware merchants’ Thomas Kearney and John Riordan both on Main Street in the late 1880s.
They may well have been potters themselves but they were, most likely, merchants for the merchandise of others.
What’s in a name ? Potters are often referred to nowadays as ceramicists and a practitioner of that class of craft and talent launched her own studio / shop at No. 94 Main Street, Castleisland on Monday morning, August 10th 2020 at 10am.
After her first week of trading in the new shop, Delia is delighted with the warmth of the welcome she got from fellow and neighbouring business people in the town.
She’s also taken aback with the level of business she’s been doing in terms of straight sales from stock and from orders received during the week.
The Diamond Sisters will be live from 7PM tonight and also joining them is their brother Donal for a few songs on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/The-Diamond-Sisters-music-101939261282384/
Plus previous mini concerts can still viewed on the link.
Just had a message in:
A man with an occupant in his van was stopped outside our gate asking for directions to St. John’s well. Was inquiring about our dog and how old she was. He was curious as to how she acted as well. We watched as he drove towards Aubane area driving slowly past everyone’s house. A newish silver van with English Reg plates. Very suspicious and let everyone to keep watch of their dogs.
Remember keep an eye out for any Plastic Ties or markings outside your gate, and let anyone know if you see anything on other peoples properties.
We are looking for someone to join our team in Sliabh Luachra Montessori School, Rathmore !!
Childcare qualified, enthusiastic and fun!!!
