The final part of our video series of Radio Kerry’s Frank Lewis following In The Footsteps of Fr Pat Moore takes us from the Asdee Community Centre to Jack Walsh Park & finally to the top of the hill overlooking the village & the Shannon Estuary.
In the first video, we are outside the Community Centre, where Eoin Kennedy gives a brief history of where Asdee got its name, Mary Mulvihill discusses Asdee Community Development, Gerdy O’Carroll talks about Asdee’s rich history of drama groups, while Gerdy, Jack Hennessy, Kathleen Carmody, & Mairead Doyle perform a shortened version of their county title-winning sketch.
In the second video, we are in Jack Walsh Park in Tullahinell where John Kennedy speaks about Asdee GAA & Sean Coughlan, Barry Healy discusses Asdee Rovers, Pat Lacey speaks about the history of Handball in Asdee, and Jimmy Quinn & John Paul Galvin give a lovely rendition of the Cliffs of Dooneen.
In the third & final video, Jim O’Connor tells the story of German guns stored on the hill, Gerdy O’Carroll speaks about the Asdee Creamery, Donie O’Keeffe discusses mass on the hill on Easter morning & Hog’s Island, Frank asks Roisin Fogarty her favourite thing about the hill, and Ann Marie Tydings finishes the show with a beautiful version of the Village of Asdee.
