THE KILFLYNN CHRONICLE IS BACK
Now that Corn Neilus Ó Floinn is back in the parish it is also surely time for the return of an old parish institution, The Kilflynn Chronicle. Published periodically between 1994 and 2014.
To date thirteen issues have been produced. Down through the years the Chronicle has told the story of Kilflynn, its past and present; the proceeds from its sale providing some funding to local groups. This year the proceeds will go to the Parents’ Association of Scoil Treasa Naofa, which works tirelessly, with school staff and the Board of Management, in supporting school projects and events. The Chronicle is only as good as the material we, the production team, receive. Therefore, if you have an interesting story to tell we would like to hear it.
Historical pieces, reports of local groups and organisations, photos, old and new, poetry, indeed, anything of local interest is welcomed for inclusion. The cost of producing a quality magazine is high, so this year we will again publish a directory of all local businesses, with contacts numbers, inside the back cover. The price of inclusion is €20 and we ask all local businesses to please support us. Since we last published, many people have enquired if the Chronicle would return and told of how those living away from home loved to receive a copy before Christmas.
Therefore, in order that the magazine is printed well in advance of Christmas the production team ask that all content is submitted by Wednesday 15th November, at the latest. All content should be emailed to email@example.com or contact John Flaherty at (087) 2352753, Mike Parker at (087) 9794541, Margaret Quille, Joe McAuliffe, T J O’Sullivan, Brendan Tuomey or Frankie Lynch. Old photographs will be returned promptly when scanned. Anyone who would like to help out with producing the magazine is more than welcome to join us. To the contributors, the production team look forward to hearing from you!
