Lusitania Centenary. Thanks to all who attended St. Benedict's Church, Coolmeen on Sunday May 10th. Two parishioners were remembered in the Mass who lost their lives in the great tragedy of May 7th 1915 - Dr. Joe Garry of Shanahea and Michael Galvin of Derryshane. The celebrant of the mass was Very Rev. Fr. Albert McDonnell, Parish Priest. Many relatives travelled from counties - Dublin, Mayo, Cork, Limerick, Wicklow, Galway and Clare. Also in attendance was a great, great grand niece of Dr. Garry's from France.  Before mass the tri colour was raised at half-mast, at the main gate entrance to church. At the conclusion of mass the 'Lusitania' song from the P.J. Murrihy CD was fittingly played.



Irish Agriculture Nationalised
Irish Agriculture Nationalised - The Dairy Disposal company and the Making of the Modern Irish Dairy Industry - by Micheál Ó Fathartaigh, was launched on Wednesday April 29th by An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny TD at The Plunkett House, Dublin. Irish Agriculture Nationalised tells the remarkable story of the Dairy Disposal Company (DDC), one of the first state-sponsored bodies, established in 1927 to acquire private creameries and other agri-businesses and transfer them to co-operative societies. It evoked into an agency that developed creameries and other agri-businesses, particularly in the south, and stimulated economic growth. By the time it dissolved in 1978 it had laid the foundations for, for instance, the Kerry Group and Golden Vale. Micheál Ó Fathartaigh is originally from Co. Galway and lectures in modern history at Dublin Business School; he is also a visiting researcher in the School of Business at Trinity College Dublin.
