Beneath Headstones Beyond Headlines : Stories from Borrisoleigh’s Past



The inspiration for John Connors’ book; “Beneath Headstones, Beyond Headlines”, came while he was involved in documenting the headstones in famous Glenkeen graveyard. Noting on many of the departed that lie within the confines of that ancient burial site, he began his research, to find that many of those were prominent throughout times of war, famine, rebellion, land agitations, elections, sporting accomplishments, etc.nnnnThe book contains almost fifty short stories from Borrisoleigh’s past, along with some interesting or amusing snippets taken from the newspaper archives.
