BALLINADEE IN JUNE 2018

Members foregathered at the homestead of John & Mary to welcomed for morning refreshments  in sunny Ballinadee on Sunday 9th June 2018.       Kilpadder Famine Burrial Ground, Innishannon, Co. Our first stop along the way was at Kilpadder famine burial ground near innishannon, Co. Cork.  Our guide, artist Mary Nolan O’Brien as a child passed the old Famine graveyard every day on her way to school — and, at the request of her mother, always murmured a prayer as she walked by. So it was fate that must have brought an elderly American man to...
