    two books I seek to purchase and am asking for addresses or emails for contact in Ireland

    “Aspects of the Famine in NO. Kerry 1845-1852 by John Pierse and The Forgotten Irish by Damien Shiels

    I tried to contact mentioning your request to reference your name, but have not heard back from her. I cannot get either here in USA apparently .

    Can you suggest bookshops in Kerry with email and or addresses in my effort to acquire above 2 titles? You certainly are keeping busy!

      Sheila, I would recommend Brenda Woulfe who has a marvelous bookshop in Listowel and definitely stocks the John D. Pierse Famine book. I am sure she probably also has the Damien Shiels Book. You might email Brenda at and tell her that I gave you the link. John Pierse donated all proceeds of Aspects of the Famine in North Kerry to the local Tidy Towns Committee but they were not really set up as a commercial entrprise so it is better now to go directly to the bookshop.
