GUEST,Beachcomber BS: Things found in used books. (30) RE: BS: Things found in used books. 02 Sep 13


What do you think of this Jim ? My brother, in Melbourne, picked up a copy of an old Irish Poetry Anthology in a second hand bookshop, about three years ago. On opening it he was flabbergasted to find , between the pages, a hand written poem in memory of a Miceál Ó Foghludha , who had been a native of our own Co.Waterford Village . He had been very involved with Connradh na Gaeilge from the founding (1896 ?) up to his death C. 1955/6. Miceál had been related to Risteárd Ó Foghludha ("An Fiachra Éilgach") the great Irish Scholar from Killeagh, Co.Cork.(I'm sure you've come upon his name, he was also one of the Secretaries at the meeting of the First Dáil in the Mansion House in 1919. He had been a friend of Dan Fraher, Cathal Brugha and Maud Gonne.
