The Officers and Members of the County Cork BP&P Association mourn the passing of our esteemed Past President, Joe Murphy. Joe was called to his eternal reward on Saturday, October 5, 2019 surrounded by his loving family at his home in Whitestone, NY after a long illness.

Cork, the youngest of ten siblings, Joe was educated in the local national school, the “North Mon” in Cork City, and St. Augustine’s College, in Dungarvan, Co. Waterford. He immigrated to the United States in 1956, first
to California and then to New York City. He continued his academic pursuits at Long Beach State College and at New York City’s Fordham University.
Joe first secured employment in the banking profession, working both for the Bank of America and the Bank of New York. In the 1970’s, he took a position as advertising director with the Irish Echo newspaper, in New York, for which he already wrote a popular weekly column. Joe broadened his journalistic experience as the New York correspondent for the, then, Cork Examiner, and also for RTE. In that capacity, he was proud to work as an analyst, with the late Michael O’Hehir, on the broadcasting of two National Football League finals from New York’s Gaelic Park.

Dan Cronin was born in a cosy and homely thatched cottage in the wonderfully scenic townland of Aunaskirtane, Rathmore, Co. Kerry in the 1920s. He was educated in Shrone N.S. up to the age of fourteen. Dan had always maintained a keen interest in old tales and history. His superb narratives were penned from reality. Fireside tales of other days so gripped that he often felt he was present as the stories were occurring.   It was a true privilege knowing the wonderful Dan and his late wife, Margaret.  Dan had such a wonderful sense of humour and his consistent smile projected his sincere friendliness to All. Being a member of a very special Sliabh Luachra group which was formed to coordinate the most memorable Launch of one of Dan’s most famous and most popular books “In the Shadow of the Paps” at the “Two Mile Inn” Hotel in Killarney (now “The Torc” near Lissavigeen) it was such an honour being asked to take the photograph which appears on the cover of the world renowned book.  And what a mighty day we all had visiting various locations in Sliabh Luachra to capture images for the book with Dan relating such great stories about each location as we travelled on a beautiful day in Summer.  Dan and Margaret were always so very welcoming not only in Aunaskirtane but also in Rathmore.   Dan has left a magnificent legacy in the world of literature and history.   Thankfully, over the years Dan was recorded on television, radio and locally.   What a hugely valuable treasure this is for many generations to come.   Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.  (Seán Radley)  [read more …] “Death Notice: Dan Cronin Aunaskirtane and Brú na Sínsir, Rathmore, Co.
