History brought home as rugby great launches DVD

Rugby legend Donal Lenihan reconnected with his family roots in Listowel on Thursday night last when he launched a dvd on the War of Independence in North Kerry at the Kerry Writers’ Museum.

Produced by Jimmy Deenihan and narrated by RTÉ’s Joe Stack, the two-hour documentary delves into the traumatic and tragic events of the conflict.

There was a very strong turnout for the launch with family members of those involved a century ago and local historians among the audience.
