The launch of the book Oileán na Márbh will take place in Leo’s Tavern Meenaleck on Saturday August 30th at 9.30pm. Oileán na Márbh is a novel set in the Lower Rosses in 1897. It’s a story of landscape and history, of love and loss, of change and challenge to cultural norms, of clergy and community, of misunderstanding and rumour, of responsibility and redemption. Music on the night will be provided by Clann Mhic Ruairí and Brí. Everyone is welcome.

Hugo Sharkey had a surprise discovery this week when digging his potato crop at his lakeside croft in Annagry West. Measuring over nine inches in length, it must be one of the largest specimens ever to be grown in the region. The variety is Désirée, taken from East Anglia earlier in the season. It certainly has made its self at home in the fertile limestone furrows of the Murlough shores.
