Arson attacks on Leitrim Creameries
« on: Friday 25 August 17 16:16 BST (UK) »
Does anyone know anything about a spate of arson attacks on creameries in and around Kinlough/Glenade during the  pre-1920 period. My wife grandfather was a creamery manager there and it was also burned to the ground. Would appreciate something, if possible.
