These Record deaths in Durrus, Kilcrohane, Bantry from the early 20th century to 1958.  I have put in  back up info and in a number of cases newspaper obits.  The last is Master Hurley, Kilcrohane, died aged 79 in 1958.  James O’Mahony, KIlcrohane mentioned to me that he had done a lot to encourage the planting of pines on the peninsula.  An English Lady had a house in Ahakista maybe the one Graham Norton has now and propagated 3 varieties of pine trees.  She would leave them outside her gate.  The combined efforts are still evident all over the peninsula.  If anyone else has memorial cards I will happily include.
