    Congratulations to the good people of Fenagh – my mother Jan O Rourke came from thereabouts and I have forever being thinking of visiting – reading about your developments will hasten the day when I will drop in for a visit.
    I was born in Manorhamilton and am currently based in Waterford and was looking at historical details of that city when I lighted on a picture of your renovated church which brought me to your first rate site.

    Congrats again – Seán Murphy
