I WAS IN KERRY THIS LAST SUMMER AND STAYED IN KINARD AT A COUSINS HOUSE. MY FAMILY FARM IS STILL THERE AND IN OUR FAMILY THOUGH NO ONE HAS LIVED ON IT SINCE THE EARLY SIXTIES. ONE OF MY COUSINS WENT TO SCHOOL IN KILREELIG (CILL RIALIAG) AND WE VISITED THE VILLAGE THIS SUMMER. YOU MUST PASS THROUGH BOOLAKEEL AND TAKE THE COAST ROAD AROUND THE POINT TO KILREELIG IT IS IN A BEAUTIFUL SPOT THAT LOOKS OUT IN THE ATLANTIC TO SKELLIGS ROCK. THE VILLAGE IS NOW IN THE PROCESS OF BEING RESTORED AND HAS TURNED INTO A GOVERNMENT SUBSIDISED ARTISTS COLONY.IF YOUR ARE INTERESTED IN THIS AREA THERE IS A TERIFIC BOOK CALLED SKELLIGSIDE BY MICHAEL KIRBY WHO STILL LIVES THERE AND WAS A CHILDHOOD FRIEND OF MY FATHERS. MY GRANDFATHER IS MENTIONED IN THE BOOK AS BEING THE COOPER OF THE VILLAGE.

SINCERELY, KEVIN MORAN
