Leitrim Guardian.
This was an eight page paper, somewhat larger than tabloid format, selling at one
penny, which was owned by Dolan, and printed and published in Manorhamilton
every Saturday morning for seven months between July 1907 and February 1908.

The paperís printing works were located in Balamís (now Centra) in Upper Main
S t reet.


Sean Mac Diarmada was editor of the paper and also director of elections
for Dolan. Although only 24 years of age at the time he was already an accomplished
public speaker, and had been organiser for the Republican Dungannon Clubs in
Ulster.

Wow fascinating history, Would love to see a the picture of of Anne Jane Gladys. I am finding it easier to go forward but love finding out about the types of jobs that people had back then. I have found that a few are musically inclined, some have an talent for gardening 9(like my sister got it from grandmother Bona Ballam)
Thank you for this info. but not sure what Donagh McGillycuddy - the hereditary chief of the clan in Ireland. I have seen the McGillyccuddy name but not for the Ballams.
Thank Anne
