As you read the contents of this Memories section you will see that there is room for all kinds of things. We invited a few people to start us off.  Your memories might mean a lot to, and provide enjoyment for other people – especially those who no longer live around Ballinacree.  We invite you to send us something, long or short. You may say ‘Ah! I’m not much good at writing!’  Do the best you can and if editing is needed we (at the website) can look after that.  You can send your piece by email to:  Photographs are also welcome. They can be scanned and returned.
