HOME FROM USA: A belated welcome home to Geraldine Carberry formerly of Kenagh who has returned to her native heath from New York after an absence of almost twenty years. Geraldine stayed with her sister Maureen Miley where she enjoyed a well earned holiday for the past two weeks. While at home she visited all her siblings, relatives extended family and all her friends and neighbours. She was amazed at all the changes since she left Kenagh especially all the new houses, the new families and all the other social changes which have made the parish so different from when she left in the nineteen ninties. We look forward to her visit again in the not too distant future.
