2. Illustrated talk. During Covid, Kathy Roughan, a Clarecastle native living in Sydney, transcribed over 1,000 pages of property records for Clarecastle & Ballyea parish from 1855 to 1970, and kindly donated to Clarecastle & Ballyea Heritage. Her work and how to find your house will be demonstrated. Ownership records of these buildings serve as a wonderful source of family and social history.
