Editor's 50th Anniversary

My cousin, Fr. Gerry, sent me a cutting he found in family papers which reminded me that it is now 50 years since I edited the Shanganagh Valley News in Ballybrack.

The paper was short-lived but served a useful function in the community and was very popular. In addition to its many features, it carried local news snippets and sports results. It had a worldwide circulation as people sent it to family members who had emigrated, in order to keep them posted on the latest happenings at home.

You can get a flavour of it on my website.
