Finally, when I was asked to put a brief history of Hollyford together I thought it would be easy. I soon discovered that calling it a brief history is a contradiction. Any one of the subjects I touched on is not a proper history of itself. It is too brief to be called a history. Under a F.Á.S. project in the late 1980s a comprehensive history of Hollyford was compiled. By contacting this website at any time www.hollyford.ie a more complete history of any of those subjects I have written about is available.
