Well researched article by Rosita Boland in to-day’s Irish Times (1st December). Rosita interviewed me in the Archives Dept of Kerry County Library and saw for herself the actual Minute Books of the Famine period in the Kerry Workhouses. She also spoke with Michael Lynch, Co. Kerry Archivist who is doing a great job in preserving our Kerry history sources with minimal resources.
