‘My most cherished memory happened when I was twenty-one years old. I was out potting for lobsters and crabs with a local fisherman on a flat calm summer’s day. We were in Dunmanus Bay. As we were steaming up the bay to collect a string of thirty pots, I saw what looked like a huge wave rolling in from the open Atlantic. It stretched the full width of the bay. But the water turned out to be a massive pod of dolphins, and soon, we were surrounded by hundreds of them. They swam with the boat and I sat at the end of the bow to watch in amazement. I cherish this memory, as I have never seen the likes of it since.’

I Am Kerry

I am Kerry like my mother before me 

And my mother’s mother and her man

Now I sit on an office stool remembering

And the memory of them like a fan

Soothes the embers into flame.

I am Kerry and proud of my name……….

My favourite  memory from childhood …. spending Christmas night at my grandmothers bar (Crowley’s Bar, Henry Street, Kenmare).

 

The whole family would gather (we have a very large family). Aunts, uncles, cousins, we would spend the evening drinking as much minerals and eating as many packets of Tayto as we possibly could until we felt sick! and discussing what Santa had brought us! It was so much fun!

 

My grandmother, Joan Crowley passed away earlier this year and the bar is now run by my uncle Peter.

She would have loved this project as she was a great people person and was known near and far, a legend in her own right … a great musician, she was loved by everyone who knew her and is missed dearly …

It just goes to show the importance of recording things and writing down memories and taking pictures to ensure precious memories are passed on.’

‘My favourite song is – My Heart and I. The reason is, I always sing it in a duet with my wife Eileen on social occasions. I have many happy memories of it’.
