On the night of August the 22nd, 2017, Jampa Ling Tibetan Buddhist Centre in Cavan hosted an evening of old neighbours gathered in the former coachhouse of Owendoon House to recall their stories and reminiscences of the house and farm in former times, as part of National Heritage Week.
We present a selection of these reminiscences, audio recorded by Cavan Heritage, along with a short film with some detailed memories of the house and its previous owners related by Kathleen Plunkett (née Prior). Kathleen’s father worked in Owendoon from the age of 10. Kathleen has since passed away. Her granddaughter Tamara narrates her story.
