On Sunday next IRD Duhallow together with IFA, Coillte, Mental Health Ireland and See Change are organising a walk in the Island Wood Newmarket with a focus on Raising Awareness on Mental Health.  The theme of the day is “Let’s Talk and Walk”

The Green Ribbon Walk is a month long campaign that is taking place during May to raise awareness and promote positive mental health.

Sharing Canvassing Comment

We thank Margaret Buckley for sharing one of the comments expressed during current canvassing for the Local Election:

“On the canvass recently, I came across complaints of dog-fouling on the pavements around the town. One person in particular was fulsome in her praise of the beauty of the town and its environs but found it off-putting to come across dog poo on the pavements. Now that the summer months are here, more people will be out exercising. This is a gentle reminder that we should all take responsibility for our dogs and their leavings. Remember, the pavements are for everybody… Kind regards, Margaret Buckley.”  (S.R.)

Ardnageeha Dispensary

Hi, my name is Pat O Riordan and I hail from Curraraigue and I am now living in Leap near Skibbereen. My mother Mai Mullane now diseased came from Ardnageeha Cullen. I am doing some research on the family. My uncle Con Mullane owned the land on which a doctor’s house and Dispensary was built.
I am wondering if there is any information available on when it was built, The names of the Doctors who worked there. I would appreciate any information or perhaps where I might be able to find information on the house a and the dispensary.

Kind regards, Pat O Riordan

Genealogy: Looking for information Patrick Byrne

I am hoping you can help me. I was really pleased to find your community website as I am trying to find information regarding a Patrick Byrne who came from Millstreet, Cork. During the late 1930s, early 1940s he worked in London as a builders labourer. I understand he had a family in Millstreet. Frustratingly this is all the information I have, I am doing this research on behalf of my mother and it is important to her to find out what became of him. Would it be possible to post a message on your website to see if it means anything at all to any descendants of any Byrne families?

Many thanks and kind regards, Sharon Lees <email>
