Thomas Ashe: a biography

A new biography will launch this month to commemorate the centenary of a local revolutionary hero. Thomas Ashe was born in Lispole, Co Kerry on January 12 1885, the seventh child in an Irish-speaking farming family.  His part in the Irish struggle for independence is given proper recognition in this new biography. There will be a celebration on 23 September in Lispole. For more information visit www.dingle-peninsula.ie
