Over the last few months Tralee historian Robert Tangney has been preparing to publish his book on the history of Ballymullen Barracks. Our previous Secretary Jean Prendergast was one of those who has given Robert some invaluable help with information and photographs. Robert will be launching his book on Tuesday June 24th at Tralee County Library at 7pm. All are welcome to attend and the book will be on sale priced €15 with an optional extra of €3 for a map of Ballymullen dated 1912.

Many months ago one of our members in Canada contacted me about a book which he was in the process of writing. The book was based on the life of his Grandfather who served with the Munsters in both India and The Great War. Mike’s book is now complete and has been published. I have read the book and i can assure you that it is well worth buying. The book is listed on Amazon and can be found under Michael F. Donoghue or by clicking on the link below.

Due to the recent resignation of Ms. Jean Prendergast as The Association Secretary, the Committee met recently to elect a replacement. A unanimous decision was taken to elect Ms. Colette Collins as a replacement. Colette has been a member of The RMFA for a number of years and has travelled on a number of occasion to both The Western Front and Gallipoli. All enquiries for membership should be sent to Colette. She can be contacted at
Main Street, Liscarroll, Co, Cork.
The Association wishes to convey our best wishes to our former Secretary Ms. Prendergast and hopes that she continues in her wonderful work as both an Archivist and Historian.
