Father Griffin’s body found

image preview

At about 3pm on the afternoon of Saturday, November 20, 1920, William Duffy of Cloghscoilte near Barna was driving cattle locally when one of them got stuck in the mud. William noticed part of a coat sticking out of the gap, so he went for his neighbours Patrick and Thomas Lydon, and later Patrick Cloherty and Patrick Concannon from Truskey joined them at what turned out to be a grave. They uncovered part of the body and realised that it was that of Fr Griffin. They decided to wait until it was dark so they covered up the body again, afraid that the Tans might return to remove it. William Duffy rode on horseback into Fr O’Meehan in Montpellier Terrace to inform him of the tragedy. Fr O’Meehan, Fr Sexton, and Canon Considine then hired Patsy Flaherty’s side car and went out to Clochscoilte.

To Hell in a Handbag

image preview

Coming to the Town Hall next Wednesday, September 6, is wickedly funny comedy To Hell in a Handbag, written, and performed by Helen Norton and Jonathan White and exploring two minor characters from The Importance of Being Earnest – Miss Prism and Canon Chasuble. A governess and a country rector; models of Victorian propriety in public, but in private? This is the play behind the play: a tale of blackmail, false identity, and money that offers a subversively funny new take on a theatrical classic.
