Living History in Ring of Gullion

The Irishness of Crossmaglen 1975

The Irishness of Crossmaglen  1975

Tomás Ó Fiaich and the complexity of his native South Armagh

Monsignor Tomás Ó Fiaich became the latest public figure to revisit their childhood home for RTÉ’s ‘My Own Place’ on 5 November 1975. At the time he was President of St Patrick’s College, in Maynooth, Co. Kildare, but often made time to return to his native Crossmaglen in Co. Armagh. In this extract he talks about the people of the area.

On a visit to Slieve Gullion, Tomás Ó Fiaich recounts some of the mythology associated with the mountain.

This edition of ‘My Own Place’ was broadcast on 5 November 1975.
