People You Should Know in Gwangju…John Howard


Kilcorney native John Howard has spent the last five years in South Korea. He lives, works and plays in Gwangju, a city of 1.5 million people in South West of the country. He’s interviewed this week on the Gwangju Blog as one of the “People You Should Know in Gwangju”:

Name…John Howard
Occupation…Elementary School English teacher
Hometown…Kilcorney, North County Cork, Ireland (current population 406 approx.)
Length of time in Korea…Arrived Sunday, March 4th, 2012 so MY GOD coming up on 5 years in Korea now! :-O
My hometown is famous for…having the oldest primary school in Ireland still in operation (built in 1864!) Also, Kilcorney has a higher presence of sióga/fairies than other villages in Ireland. They roam the moors at night… but I’m not supposed to talk about them…

Paddy O’Keeffe’s Bog

One fine Summer’s evening when passing by Togher
I stood, and enraptured, I gazed all around.
The peaceable scenes of my long vanished childhood
No more on the slopes of this mountain I found.
The sheep and the cattle that grazed on the hillside
Recalling to memory the plains of Royal Meath
Had now disappeared and their places were taken
By men who were digging for ‘gold’ underneath.

Those bogs which for centuries lay sorely neglected
Were now utilised by each true Irishman
To make his dear Motherland more independent
Of England’s support since this cruel war began.
From town and from city they rallied to Togher
Such scenes of industry I ne’er saw before
For hundreds and thousands in shirt-sleeves were digging
And when they had done, they went looking for more.

To make the acquaintance of all those young workmen
I walked right along till I met Paddy Keeffe.
Oh, Paddy was beaming and smiling all over
And graciously told me that I had his leave
To travel, if weather and time would permit me,
The turf-covered heights of his far-flung domain
And see for myself how each workman was faring,
Find out all about him and, of course, get his name.

Dan Lucey executed in Kilcorney for Spying

Macroom man Dan Lucey, who was of good family, was married and his brother was a priest. He was of violent temper and he was quarrelsome in disposition. In January 1921, he had fallen out with a few IRA Volunteers in Ballinagree, and was later seen talking to the Auxiliaries in Macroom. So he was visited by two IRA Volunteers from Donoughmore area disguised as British officers. He was asked if he had seen any of “the boys”—meaning IRA men—lately. He gave his questioners all the information he had, while unknownst to him, other men from Rusheen Company waited outside the door. He was taken prisoner on the spot, taken north of Mushera to Kilcorney, and was held prisoner for about a fortnight, during which time he was given a fair trial by the brigade staff and sentenced to death. He was shot and buried after in Kilcorney, by the Millstreet Battalion, Cork II Brigade.
