I seem to have been ‘off the air’ for the past two or three weeks, all for a good cause though.  With all the different 1916/2016 commemorations the last few weeks have been a bit hectic.  On Easter Monday I was at the day long commorative tribute in Dublin, the highlight being the National Commemoration at the College of Surgeons.  Since then I have been at  the Roger Casement Commemoration at Banna Strand, the Limerick City event on last Sunday and later that afternoon, the event at Grange, Co. Limerick.

Roger Casement Banna Beach 21st April 2016.

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind, that Thursday 21st at Banna Strand was the highlight. As has already been said elsewhere, anyone who was lucky enough to have attended will always remember it.  For those of you were not so lucky , you may be able to get the podcast so well filmed by RTE here.

Then to Finding Your Ancestors in Kerry.

MKA Blog FKA Promo April 16Had a good positive trip to-day visiting Parish Offices in ‪#‎Kerry‬ promoting the advantages to them of recommending my book Finding Your Ancestors in Kerry. For preservation of the irreplaceable #Kerry baptism & marriage records, I would suggest they refer enquirers to search through the online archives as quoted p.56.  I also visited the #Kerry bookshops  in Listowel, Tralee and Killarney, was delighted to see copies stocked for the forthcoming visitor season.  Dingle, Killorglin, Cahirciveen and Kenmare still to visit.
