Kells was well represented at these championships with Noah Gilmore, Cormac Holden, Muireann Holden, Nicky Healy and Hugh Healy all competing for KCH. Well done to all.

Kells Historic Society is hosting a talk entitled the Dunnamaggin Murders on March 26th in Mullins Mills at 8pm by author and historian Tony Patterson.. In 1848 two locals named Prim and Yates were shot just outside Dunnamaggin. What ensued was one of the largest manhunts of that time in Ireland followed by a high profile trial. The Donemaggan murders as they were known was in every paper from Belfast to Kerry. Don't miss this opportunity to learn of some forgotten local history.
