Goats, Bees and Spies – Redux


Roaringwater Journal

The farm at Dooneen

This post was first published in October 2013. Since then I have found more material, so have decided to update it.

The non-fiction book, White Goats and Black Bees by Donald Grant is set on the Sheep’s Head. Donald and Mary Grant, a couple of journalists based in New York, impulsively decided to jump off the career treadmill and become farmers in Ireland in the 1960’s.

They can legally send no fish to France but salmon, all the rest goes to Spain’…… ‘They make huts to keep their cattle in the mountains in summer and live on new churn milk’. …… ‘Girls married at the age of thirteen and boys at sixteen’ … ‘People here live to a great age, notwithstanding they drink drams immoderately, living on fish and potatoes, and the sea air makes…

1838. Voter Registration, Bantry, West Cork


Note to the Editor of the Cork Commercial Courier dated the 15th February, 1838:

The Registry commenced here this morning at ten o’clock before Assistant Barrister, Mr. Moody and the members of the Close to Dusk Co. Cork – fifteen liberals, six orange men of Burrow, Bandon and John O’Connell, Esq and others were most indivisible for deliverable interest.  Disappointment was depicted in the countenance of the conservatives in this town – the Derry I might be permitted the designate of the South that their exertions were great indeed to try and defeat the honest frieze quoted from obtaining the franchise.  The tenants of Timothy O’Donovan, Esq of O’Donovan’s Cove, Durrus,  were chiefly those who registered.  Messrs. O’Donovan and Galwey appeared on the part of the liberals and Messrs. Greg and Morgan for the conservatives.  

Yours etc. a Liberal, Bantry, 12th February.
