West Cork History

Obituary of Canon TJ Walsh, Cork Historian, 1984.

Father Walsh’s writing display an amazing knowledge of sources of going back to original material and are a testament to his keen intelligence.  When he was Parish priest in Durrus in the 1960s his sermons ranged over historical figures such a Aonghus Ó Dalaigh the Kilcrohane poet, alas it was lost on his congregation.

In time to come his work may again be appreciated by the public.

Father Séamus Coombes who wrote the obituary was himself a noted historian in particular of West Cork themes.
