The trees are in their Autumn beauty

The woodland paths are dry….

Beneath those rugged elms, that
yew trees shade,

Where heaves the turf in many
a mouldering heap

Each in his narrow cell
forever laid,

The rude forefathers of the
hamlet sleep.


 A well known landmark is getting a facelift. Fred Chute is doing a magnificent job (as usual) on The Harp and Lion.

Important date for the diary

Everyone is invited to The Lartigue Museum on Sunday night next Nov. 24 2013 at 7.30 p.m. for the launch of a very significant book on the North Kerry railway Line.

Anyone with even the remotest interest in Railways or in Listowel’s rail history must buy this book. It will be available on the night at a special price of €10.

If anyone belonging to you worked on or had any connection with the line, come along at 5.00 p.m. on the night and talk to Maria Leahy who is compiling an oral history of families associated with the line.
