The 16th issue of the Sliabh Luachra Journal will be officially launched in the Denis Murphy Memorial Hall, Gneeveguilla, on Friday November 28, at 8.30pm, by leading traditional musician Matt Cranitch. Everybody is welcome.
Published by the local history society, Cumann Luachra, the biennial journal includes a wide range of articles on the history, life and lore of a storied area straddling the Cork/Kerry border, best known for its poets and traditional music.
The 120-page journal also has a large collection of old photographs. This time, the package includes a separate, smaller publication by John Stephen O’Sullivan on the poet Eoghan Rua O Suilleabhain, who died 230 years ago and whose work continues to be celebrated.
