Brian and Paddy Prendergast would like to thank everybody that supported their little Covid project, their book - Diary of a Mohill Man.

“It was intended really just to preserve the stories, and create a snapshot in time of 1950's Mohill, and by the reaction we received we think we might have done that,” said Brian.

“In the quantity we printed, it was never going to be a huge profit book, but we managed to raise €1,000 for the local Cardiac First Responders that cover Mohill,” he said.

“This was our little presentation to Ciara and Grainne of the Eslin Community Cardiac First Responders. Once again big thank you to all,” concluded Brian and Paddy.
