Following the publication of my first two books “Dingle, before Fungi Came to Town” and “Dingle People”, I hope to publish a further book relating to the social history of this area later this year. This compilation named “Dingle, Lispole and Fionntrá / Ventry” will include fifty stories from the combined parishes. The stories contain biographies, genealogy, place names, historical and social events and in excess of two hundred photographs.
They are composed to provide a ‘History for the Future’ and will serve as a historical record and a source of delight for our grandchildren’s children and generations unborn.
Three years of researching, interviewing and writing this book have been a labour of love. This is a non-profit project and meeting the costs of publication is a tremendous challenge. I am, however, determined to record and preserve our local history for future generations.
In that regard I am inviting residents and friends of Corca Dhuibhne to support the publication.
Níl neart gur cur le chéile, coimeád ár stair bheo … be part of our history!
