Heritage Notes - 22 October 2010

This week’s picture comes from a recent exhibition at the National Photographic Archives in Temple Bar. It shows Sir Richard Musgrave, seated second from left, with a cricket team made up of friends and estate workers at Tourin. It dates from 1902 and was published recently in the Irish Times as well. We also know that a cricket team flourished in Cappoquin under Captain Jameson during the 1930s, and that there is a photograph in existence of that team also. Who knows, we might see another local cricket team in action some day in the not-too-distant future..
