Growing up in the area I was aware that a tragedy had occurred but I never heard the full story. Thank you Karen.
Miss Sandes had a house built at the back of the Hare Park. Soldiers Home. Curragh Camp. this she named “Glen House” I would suggest it got this title due to her love of that area in the Wicklow mountains.
A True Gentleman Mick Keogh. I am fortunate to have known him all my life. The picture of the forestry workers, my Father John Joseph Cullen is the third from the Left hand side. I have wonderful memories of the Glen of Imaal , as a boy and man over from England. There was and still is some Wonderful characters in the Glen, my memories of Stranahealy staying with my Grandparents Paul and Helena Cullen.
Thank you Pauline. Great article. Beautiful paintings.
A very interesting article about an enterprising woman. Great to find out about the people who passed through West Wicklow in the past.
Many thanks Rachel. Hope you,re enjoying the website.
Many thanks for that Maria. It’s great to hear another cross exists. Hope you’re enjoying our website.
There’s a Murrain cross at Old Court, Manor Kilbride. The man who lived there when I was a kid, told us that it insignificant and was put there to allow the cows to scratch themselves! Those old guys were always joking us!. Glen Heste Pure Mile Group have a picture of it on page 18 in their publication Ballyward- Woodend Heritage 2018. They also say that according to local knowledge it was erected to keep away a disease known as ‘black leg’ in cattle.
Thanks James, glad you enjoyed it.
Thanks again for another very interesting and well researched article. Also great choice of illustrations and photos to accompany the piece.
Another very informative article. I particularly liked seeing the advertising poster with the finely dressed lady and the named mountain landscape in the background.

Excellent piece Karen
Lovely warm piece written about Mick Keogh, local life in the Glen of Imaal and the shops in Knockanarrigan and Donard, well done bringing those places to life.
