My first time in a ski lift.
In Kanturk Library
I made my first visit to the beautiful new library in my hometown. This is the children’s corner.
There I ran into my cousin, Donal Desmond. Donal is profoundly deaf. He was joined in the library by Eric Johnson, a fairly recent resident of Kanturk. Eric was a teacher of the deaf in Canada for 27 years. Eric signed for Donal so we didn’t have to do all the usual writing to communicate.
I was back in the library later that day for the launch of Seanchas Duhalla. Here I am with Noreen O’Sullivan of the Duhallow Heritage Society.
Denis Twohig is the chairman.
I met my old friend, Mary Lynch, chatting to Noreen Meaney
I met Mary Corbett for the first time in years.
Catching up was great.
The magazine committee have published the story of my Uncle Bernie and the combine harvester which you read first here on Listowel Connection.
There are lots of great stories in the book. i can’t wait to read them.
