History of Castlelyons

CASTLELYONS Community Council has launched their latest community effort and it is fast turning out to be a best seller.

The group's local history committee have just completed the first complete local history of the Castlelyons parish area. The book, a 700 page hard back, contains details of over 700 houses in the area, over 1,200 pictures and traces back over 250 years.

It includes the local history of each townland in the parish, including a full colour, detailed map of the area.

The book, entitled 'Tithe na Smaointe' (The House of Memories) is on sale from members of the editorial committee and is priced at €25 per copy.

The word out is that if you wish to secure a copy of this valuable, once off edition, then you had better move fast.
