Farmers Rights Campaig
The Ballinamore Library ‘Picture of the Month’ for November is a framed document titled ‘Leitrim Roll of Honour 1966 – 1967 Famers Rights Campaign’.  It was presented to the N.F.A in Leitrim by Rickard Deasey, former President of the N.F.A.  It details the Leitrim County Executive Officers 1966 – 67, Chairman: Hugh Leddy, Hon Secretary: Jim Finn and Treasurer: Liam Ellis.

It outlines that on October 12th 1966, 20 Leitrim farmers started on a walk to Dublin.  They were Hugh Leddy, Joseph O’Connell, Noel Dolan, Peter Flynn, Larry Gaffney, Desmond Quinn, Peter Honeyman, Hugh P. Brady, Shay McGovern, Tommy Heraghty, Bartley Feeney, Liam Irwin, Michael Clancy, Pat McGoldrick, John J. Smith, Peter O’Connell, John J. Duignan, Thomas J, Heaney, Marcus Clements and Thomas Kelly.

Other farmers from the area who campaigned included Charley McHugh, James Gannon, John Harte, Tony Gannon and many more.

Farmer’s rights campaigns are very topical at the moment so the protests of 48 years ago may bring back many memoires to the people of Leitrim.  If this is the case why not call to Ballinamore Library during the month of November and see the names of the farmers which are beautifully written on this document. Opening hours are Mon, Wed & Fri 10 – 5.30; Tues &   Thur 10 – 8; Sat 10 – 5, with daily lunch closing 1.30 – 2.30pm.

Film “The Wind that Shakes the Barley” Ballinamore Library
On Tuesday 18th November at 7.30pm come along to Ballinamore Library and see the film “The Wind that Shakes the Barley” This is a political drama from veteran British filmmaker Ken Loach. Damien (Cillian Murphy) is about to leave Ireland for his medical studies in London while his brother Teddy (Padraic Delaney) is an active IRA member. After witnessing an act of resistance to the daily violence of the ‘Black and Tans’, Damien abandons his burgeoning career and joins his brother in a dangerous and violent fight for freedom. Eventually, both sides agree to a treaty to end the bloodshed. But, despite the apparent victory, civil war erupts and families, who fought side by side, find themselves pitted against one another as sworn enemies, putting their loyalties to the ultimate test. Remember; Admission and all welcome.
