This blog entry refers to Jeremiah Moynihan (Diarmuid Ó Muimhneacháin)  who was a member of the Royal Irish Constabulary between 1890-1920. He was born in 1866 in the parish of Ballyvourney in Cork into a family of well-known Irish poets. He retained this interest throughout his life and published pieces in various publications. A selection of his work appeared in book form in 1946 under the title ‘Bhéarsaí “Dhá Chích Dhanann”‘. After retiring he took a farm in Manor Kilbride but continued his love of Irish culture by teaching classes in Tallaght, Brittas and Newcastle. He is buried in Baltinglass.
