My Uncle Mick Monahan “the major” who lived on Woodville Road , Kilchreest, not far from Yeats Thoor Ballylee, I was over from the states visiting in the summer of 1965, I was 17 at the time, my Uncle Mick says to me we will go for a bike ride to the dedication of the Yeats Thoor Ballylee, when we arrived at the site there were all kinds of camera people and a huge crowd for the renovated Yeats Thoor, anyways I always enjoy visiting the area of Yeats Thoor Ballylee.
