Members of the local history society and friends were entertained to another
of Br. John Feheney’s well-researched and interesting talks on Wednesday,
November 27. As usual Br. John elicits a large following for his talks and the

content of the above talk will largely appear in print later on. His subject was
the religious orders and the followers they attracted from our local area as
well as the somewhat different approach that the reformed churches employed
in gathering clerics to their ranks. Sean Cotter, Secretary of the Society,
introduced the speaker and thanked him for his spellbinding talk, which
interested his hearers who would have known many of the local families who
gave members towards the apostolate at home or abroad. The next talk to be
hosted by the Kenry Historical Society will be of a different nature even though
it involves a cleric of the Protestant church. He unfortunately came to a grisly
end in Ballynacarriga at the hands of some locals. Much mystery surrounds
this affair and Noreen Curtis who has done a study of the event will present her
findings at a date to be fixed towards the end of the month.

rented rooms with Elizabeth O’Shaughnessy in September 1940.
