    Thanks! Paddy Drury wrote a version of “Valley of Knockanure”. (I have the words).

    I’m interested in this song and always believed that it was written by Bryan MacMahon (Tim Leahy wrote yet another version). However, on the Peggy Sweeney DVD “Kerry: A Kingdom of Song”, authorship is credited to Kiely O’Mahony of Athea. Does anyone know anything abour Mr. O’Mahony (dates, etc)
    and whether or not he really did write “Valley of Knockanure”? (I’m working on a book on Irish songs)

    What a wonderful site!!
    I have had great fun this afternoon taking an aerial view of Moyvane, listening to Kerry radio, touring the pubs, etc. Great fun!
    My grandmother was Hannah McAuliffe of Newtownsands.
    I visited the area in the 1980s.

    What fun to see Moyvane again after 30 or so years. Spent some great summers there as a kid from the Bronx. My Grandmother was Honora McAuliffe from Moyvane and we were related to the Moores, the O’Connors on Glin Road and the Doyles. Hello to all!

    Hi Guys,

    I’m currently travelling over land from Singapore to Bangkok and loving every minute of it. I’ve been absolutely everywhere that has a road leading in to it! There is so much to see here and its so hot. The Islands off Thailand are amazing, especially Koh Sumai. I was at the Full Moon Party on the next island a couple of days ago and i’m still wrecked after it… gotta run now. Take care.

    The site is great!

    Greeting from America, many summers were spent having a great time on Glin Rd. I never knew my grandparents Con & Nora O’Connor but I had many Aunts and Uncles and cousins that made my summer stays the best. Spent alot of time in the forge with my Uncle Mossie that I will never forget. Thanks for a wonderful website.
