Kerry County Library

GREAT MAN: Taken from Irish Library News April 2007
Kerry County Library was recently given a donation of some newspapers relating to the early part of the 20th century.
The donor was Knocknagoshel  native, Liam Lynch and among the titles were copies of
An Phoblacht(1916) and The Irish Volunteer(1920).
At the presentation in Tralee Library, Liam also donated copies of his recent autobiography A Stranger to Darkness. In his book,
Liam writes about his life experiences, both before and after his sight loss, and explains how he regained his independence through mobility training and partnership with his guide dog, Yale.
Liam is very kindly donating the proceeds of the book to Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind and he is well on his way to his fundraising target of€35,000 which is the total cost of a guide dog
 partnership (the breeding, training and support of a dog throughout its working life). Liam?s fundraising efforts on behalf of IGDB have been so successful that a new guide dog puppy was named Kerry, in honour of Liam?s home county. The book is available from Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind, on lo-call 1850 506 300.
