What started out as an exhibition of old photographs in 2012 , has now progressed to include a book  – Ballinskelligs Remembered – full of peoples memories from time gone by , compiled by a long term visitor to the area (Finbar Bracken) and produced by  Coiste Forbartha na Sceilge  the local development group for Ballinskelligs.

The coming year will see the production of a DVD containing a large collection of images from the book , the exhibition and more.. and who knows a follow on book with contributions from people that didn’t make the first book. Copies of the book can be purchased through the online shop on the visit ballinskelligs website or through the link here..

My thanks to everyone who committed their thoughts to print either in prose, verse or by photographic means, without such commitment there would not be this book.

All the proceeds of this book will be used to fund the activities of Coiste Forbartha na Sceilge.

If the reader derives as much satisfaction from reading these pages as I have in compiling them, then it will have been an undertaking well worthwhile.

Share the memories of ballinskelligs, recorded before they were lost forever…
