I am Alice O`Halloran and I was born at 3 Green Street in Callan in 1941

Please does anyone have Photographs of the above event. If so I would very much appriciate a copy. I would be pleased to pay any costs incurred. This could be sen via email or post

  I was ten years old and remember the event well. I was at the front of the crowd but have no photographs of my childhood. I have contacted the Kilkenny People paper without success. It would mean a lot to me if anyone could help

My grateful thanks

  • Hello Alice,

    Maybe you have slready got the information  you are looking for, but if not I am  suggesting  another possible source. It is the Callan Historical Society.

    Their website is:  where you will find further contact details for them. 

    Best of luck,
