Father Cantwell, parish priest of Valleymount, was a dedicated collector of local history and local lore. During the period 1986 to 1993, he regularly included articles on local history in the parish newsletter.
Fr. Cantwell published a compendium of local history articles - ‘Facets of our Local History’, Parts 1 & 2 in 1990 and Part 3 in 1993. He died before the final volume of ‘Facets of local History’, Part 4, could be compiled and published, but I have collated the remaining articles and assembled them into the unpublished ‘Part 4’.
Parts 1 to 4 are now available to read on-line or to download, with links as follows:- (Note that the file sizes are 7MB to 15MB so they will take a little time to download)
