Kathlee O’Sullivan from Kilgarvan spent a year in Carnaun School. From there she went to the Louis Convent, Secondary School in Monaghan. She now lives in Cork City.

Michael O’Sullivan I’m sure remembers the day he got “told off”  for looking out the window at Joe O’Brien unloading the turf. Michael now lives in Kilgarvan.

Ruari O’Sullivan will remember the days he rode the horses home from the hunt after school. He now lives near Killarney.
