About this event

THE SHEILA BARRY MEMORIAL LITERARY AND HISTORIC BUS TOUR 2022

Join us for our Literary and Historic Tour through scenic North Kerry and learn about the great literary figures of this rugged landscape. This year we will visit many landmarks that influenced and inspired Brendan Kennelly and travel to his home village of Ballylongford, or the ‘Crooked Cross’ as he affectionately named it in one of his poems.

We will visit Carrigafoyle Castle ancestral seat of the O’Connor Kerry chieftains. Lislaughtin Abbey is a medieval Franciscan Friary and national monument, and the birthplace of ‘The O’Rahilly Irish Patriot and the only leader of 1916 rising to die in action.

Finishing our tour in a local famous hostelry, Finucaines Bar, where light refreshments will be served and we will be entertained by our musicians and singers.

We hope you will join us.
