Fungi, the Dingle Dolphin


From Bord na Mona Heartland

The First International Peat Symposium took place in Ireland, 60 years ago in July 1954. Delegates came from 15 countries to discuss the latest technology in the peat industry. 20 years after an Irish delegation visited Germany and the Soviet Union to look at the industry there, now overseas delegates came to Ireland to look at our industry. This is the visit of the delegates to Clonsast Bog.


St. Mary’s Parish Church Listowel ….progress July 26 2014

The project is on target and is due to finish on Saturday next, August 2 2014.

St. Mary’s will revert from a building site to a place of worship.

New floor looking good

Radiators are being reinstalled. The old ones were good enough so no new expense there.

A new and safer ramp gives access to the altar.

Beautiful  confession boxes are put back.

Great new lighting will highlight some of the lovely old features of the church.
