Global for God’. A lovely programme to catch! You can hear this programme
again in approx. two week’s time in PODCAST format on Radio Kerry.
LECTURE SUCCESS: The insightful lecture by Bryan MacMahon on the tragedy of
The Famine in Ballyheigue drew a very large attendance during the Summer

In the Q & A session afterwards Dr. Pádraig Ó Donnabháin, retired schools’
inspector, spoke on how The Famine affected the schools of the period. His
major study of the founding and history of the national school system and
inspectorate will be launched in the Tralee Library on the 31st August.
The Heritage Group’s Summer Concert will be held in the White Sands on
Saturday 12th August with a link up with Aidan O’Carroll and the Kerry
