Happy New Year
We take this opportunity to wish all our readers a very Happy and Prosperous New Year.

HAppy New Year from Fethard, Co. Tipperary, Ireland

Jewellery found on Slievenamon
While taking a refreshing walk up to the Holy Year cross on Slievenamon on the morning of December 27, an item of jewellery was found at the base of the cross which didn’t appear to be out in the elements for too long. This piece may be of value, sentimental or otherwise, to the person who lost it. If the owner would like to get it returned please contact Joe at 087-2824438.

Season's greetings from Eldoret
It is that time of year again when we recall our many friends, greet them and wish them the very best during the Holy Christmas Season. I greet you all from Eldoret, Kenya, where we are finishing a year that has been blessed in many ways.

This past year, slowly slipping away, has been a productive one as far as development of our complex in Kabongo goes. We have been kept fully occupied building up to twenty houses for our teaching and nursing staff.

None of the overall development at Kabongo would have been possible without the great support of our friends in Fethard and around the world. The only recompense I can offer is the gratitude of hundreds of very poor children and our prayers for your intentions.
I wish each and every one of you all the blessings you deserve at this sacred time of year and look forward to meeting many of you during 2012.
— Bro. Paul D. Brennan, P.O. Box 5064, Eldoret, Kenya. 30100

Kelly Information wanted
My name is Russ Ritter and I am writing a book on the history of the Kelly/Quinn families who came out to Australia in the early eighteen hundreds from Ireland. I refer to the reports and new findings of the John 'Red' Kelly story and circumstances of his transportation in 1841, as described in the Ned Kelly walkabout organized by the Fethard Historical Society in August 1988.

I wish to know where I can purchase copies of the police and court reports. I would like to obtain a copy of the map of 1850 showing the precise location of the Kelly homestead in Clonbrogan and the Griffith Valuation reference of 1850 as well as copies of the historical and proud story of the pig stealing incident as reported using the actual police reports of the outrage which was finally located in the Dublin Castle by Sean McSweeney of the Brú Ború project in Cashel and Terry Cunningham of the Fethard Historical Society. Also the police report of John Kelly's alleged involvement with Patrick Ragan in the stealing of six fat cows belonging to a Mr Ryall of Moyglass. Is it possible to mark on the map of the homestead of Mr James Cooney the owner of the two pigs stolen by John Kelly. Where did John Kelly steal the pigs and who did he sell them to? What police station was the crime reported and in what court was the trial held?

If anyone can help me in this matter or any other relevant information that might be useful, please email and let me know the costs and postage. Regards, Russ Ritter Email: russbett@optusnet.com.au
