SOLICITOR Jacquelyn E Dunne has established a new legal firm, Dunne Solicitors, in Kildorrery, offering a broad range of legal services, including residential and commercial conveyancing, letting agreements, will and estate planning, employment and family law, personal injury claims and debt collecting.

Jacquelyn has recently joined the Family Law Free Legal Aid Panel and therefore welcomes any family law queries from those who believe they may qualify for free legal aid. This may involve queries regarding child maintenance, access issues, separation and divorce.

Jacquelyn, a regular at the district court in Fermoy, is also a member of the Criminal Free Legal Aid Panel and welcomes any questions you may have regarding summonses.

At the launch of her new firm, Jacquelyn said "I want to provide a new and flexible way of doing business for clients - this includes my free clinics and my flexible appointment times, as I understand not everyone can meet their solicitor between 9am to 5pm.

"some people may also believe visiting a solicitor is a costly experience; I want to change this while also providing excellent client care and service".

Jacquelyn, a native of New Inn, Co. Tipperary, may be better known to some as Jacquelyn Tierney. Jacquelyn moved to Kildorrery ten years ago following in the footsteps of two of her sisters, who are also married in Kildorrery.

Jacquelyn attended the University of Limerick before training as a solicitor for two years with a firm in Mitchelstown. Having qualified from Black Hall Place, Jacquelyn moved to another well known local firm in Mitchelstown in July 2008 and gained invaluable experience with them over the following five years.

Jacquelyn is delighted to invite you all to her free legal advice clinic on Tuesday, June 25 from 11am to 2pm at the St. Vincent de Paul, Ozanam Centre, New Road, Mallow. There is no need to make an appointment; however, for those wishing to make an appointment with Jacquelyn you can call her on 086 1617418. She will be glad to speak to you free of charge regarding any legal issues you may be experiencing.


Why not plant a long-lived tree? 

Andrew Collyer - Practical Gardening March 5 to 12 was National Tree Week. This is an awareness week organised by the Tree council of Ireland to promote all things trees. It has been an annual event since 1985 and should be embraced and celebrated with gusto in my opinion. Where the National tree week really becomes valuable is in schools where the education of the young in tree importance will hopefully produce a generation of responsible environmentally aware adults in the future.

Getting creative about a better quality of life 

Conor Nelligan, County Heritage Officer The Centenary Commemoration of 1916 was a tremendous success in the County of Cork, as it was across the entire nation. In response to the heightened sense of shared identity that was established in 2016, and in respect of the breadth of cultural activity and public engagement that took place, the Government has embarked on an insightful legacy project that sets out to harness the country's culture, arts and heritage over the next five years with the purpose of...

Do animals feel grief after suffering loss of someone 

Peter Wedderburn - Animal Doctor Both of my parents have passed away in the last year: they were both elderly, and had enjoyed long and fruitful lives, so there was much to be thankful for. The experience of losing them has taught me a direct personal lesson about grief. This must be one of the deepest emotions felt by humans, and I am often asked if animals experience the same feeling when they lose a close friend, whether a human owner or a fellow animal companion.
