TONY MOLLOY, COOLEEN (Part 3)

6.9910.00

Description

I met Tony Molloy at Redwood Church, which provided a commanding view of the Ballymacegan area, once controlled by the Macedgans, before the arrival of Trenchs. We could see in the distance Moatfield bog, which is now covered in birch and scrub. Our journey continued the short distance to Egan Castle, which had been badly damaged during the Cromwellian and Williamite wars. The estate was the property of the Kennedys, who sold it to Eoin Macedgan, who has now restored it back to its former glory. The recording continued in the castle, and later during a short drive around the locality.
