Fr Ferris’s Parish Histories

Fr. William Ferris was a curate in Millstreet Parish from 1934-1935, whose lifelong mission was to restore Ireland’s linguistic and cultural purity and to counteract what he saw as the Anglicisation of Irish society.  As he said of recording oral history and folklore which was in danger of going to the grave: “Each time the east wind blows, it takes an old seanachaí with it”.

Last week, the Bishop of Kerry Ray Browne will officially launched “History of the Parishes of BallymacElligott, Ballyseedy, O’Brennan and Nohoval” by Fr. Ferris which had been banned by his predecessor Dr Michael O’Brien, Bishop of Kerry 85 years ago, having taken exception to a claim by Fr. Ferris that St. Brendan was born in BallymacElligott and not in Fenit, as was accepted diocesan tradition.

In 1937 he published the book “Sráid an ṁuilinn, A History of its people by its people for its people” (under the pseudonym of Timothy Broker, to avoid the book being blocked), which recorded local history and more from the Millstreet Parish, which had been gathered at local station masses. See details of that book here.

Murphy’s Furniture Closing Down Sale

“We’re sorry to say that ‘Murphy’s Furniture’ will cease trading in the coming weeks.

After 50 years of trading in the West End, it is with heavy hearts that we made this decision. We are very grateful for the valuable support we have enjoyed over the decades from you, all of our customers, suppliers, and business counterparts. We have greatly enjoyed being part of this network, which has been a happy and rewarding experience for us. We’ll try to thank as many of you as we can in person over the coming months.

Our thanks go in particular to our most trusted, loyal, and hard-working employee and friend, Petra Dietz. Since joining us over three years ago, Petra has brought her enthusiasm and positive disposition to our business.

However, times change, and other interests beckon. As a family we wish to start another tradition, delving into the work of full time farming and breeding pedigree Angus cattle which we’ve been doing on a part-time basis for the past few years.

Our closing down sale will start on Tuesday 5th June. Please continue to check out our website, murphysfurniture.ie, and our facebook page for all of our offerings. We look forward to seeing you in the coming weeks.

While we are sad to be going, it is good to have been here.”
