On our last walk along the River Suir we met with John Quinlan – local historian and character. His family have lived alongside the river since the early 1800s and he told us fascinating stories of the history of the bridge at Kilsheelan and how it was blown up during the Civil War and the role this had in local history. John was responsible for campaigning for a plaque commemorating the soldier killed when it was blown up. We hope to reivist John and record some of his stories.
