There was a packed hall for the launch of "'Twas How We Looked", the photo album of the Upperchurch-Drombane area, in Drombane last week. The hardback book is a lavish presentation with 600 pages containing 2,500 photos and a colour section showing the outstanding local scenery.
The speakers at the launch included Eugene Shortt, Tom Quinlan and Billy Clancy, all representing the local Historical Society who produced the book as well as Fr. Tony Ryan P.P. The publication is a great example of community cooperation and is the result of contributions from about 500 households from inside and outside the local area.
The book has been very well received locally with reports of people staying up until 5.30 a.m. looking at it on the first night and with over 500 copies sold in the first ten days of the 700 printed it appears likely that it will have fully sold out before Christmas.
