SAM MAGUIRE is a replica of the Ardagh Chalice found on 17th Sept. 1868 at Reerasta South, Ardagh on the farm of Jim Quinn and Mary Halpin who was a widow. It is believed that Paddy Flanagan who may have Athea connections and Jim Quinn son of the farmer were involved in the discovery. A monument to the find was blessed in Ardagh on August 30th 2014, by Bishop Leahy of Limerick. As far as I can recall Thomas F Culhane did some research on Jim Quinn and his time in Australia.

Tablet Page 5, 11th November 1843
—It is with pride we (Kerry Examiner) publish the following letter, addressed by the above popular nobleman to the respected and zealous parish priest of Killarney, the Rev. Thomas O’Sullivan, enclosing to that rev. gentleman a handsome contribution in aid of the funds for the erection and completion of the Killarney Cathedral ” Convamore, October 27, 1843.Sir—In reply to your letter of the 25th instant, I beg to say, that as I have no property within reach of Killarney, whose inhabitants could be benefitted by the new cathedral now in progress of erection, I cannot admit that it has the same claim upon me that a building for the purpose of Divine worship would have if situated in my estate, or within such reach of

my tenants that it could be available to them. At the same time, from a sense of the importance of the work in behalf of which you have applied to me, as representative for the diocese, I have pleasure in contributing my mite, and beg your acceptance of the enclosed.—I remain, Rev. Sir, your very faithful servant
—Listowel.—T. O’Sullivan, P.P.”
