The Kilbride Book - Memories of Manor Kilbride
The Kilbride Book - Memories of Manor Kilbride. Complied by Brenda O’Brien, Ita Donohue and Tom McKeon. The Kilbride Book could not be considered the history of Manor Kilbride but more a collection of photos and articles about the area and the people who have lived here. The story is told through photographs, newspapers clippings and articles written by local people.
Some of these photos and newspaper clippings you might have seen many times but a lot are from private collections never published anywhere before, during the process of compiling this book many families opened their family albums and allowed us to use their photographs and told us personal stories of events in their lives, for this we are very grateful.
We have tried to cover all aspects in life, from the changes which have occurred over the years to how people spent their time and of course like every other village in Ireland a lot of content related to the local GAA club.
