Muskerry Local History Society launch journal

Times Past 2019-20, the journal of Launch of Times Past 2019-20 by the Lord Mayor of Cork City, Councillor Joe Kavanagh, in a socially distanced fashion at Ballincollig Gunpowder Mills recently. The Lord Mayor praised the Committee for publishing a very impressive journal. The journal has over 120 pages relating to the history of Ballincollig and Muskerry. The articles range from a medieval battle in Carrigrohane, the national school system in Ballincollig, the Kilmichael Ambush, the flying circus of the 1930s, to the Class of 1958 in Scoil Mhuire. There are also many interesting articles recording the World War 1 tour organised by the Society in 2019. The journal is being sold in local shops and special arrangements are being made to sell directly to the members of the Society. pic Mike English
