Ancestors from Donoughmore?

If you have ancestral connections to Donoughmore, co Cork, a new book may be of help to your genealogy research.

Donoughmore and all Around trawls through 300 years of burials in Donoughmore, highlighting the political, economic, social and cultural life of a rural community.

Centred on Donoughmore, the book takes in families from surrounding parishes, including Aghabullogue, Aghinagh, Blarney, Glantane, Grenagh and Inniscarra.

The official launch of the book, written by Richard Henchion, will take place at Stuake Community Centre tonight at 8pm, following a memorial mass at 7.30pm at St Lachteens.

The book can be purchased through www.donoughmorehistoricalsociety.com.
