This website only began in 2009. So my River Lee articles from 2006-2009 exist only in my publications (http://corkheritage.ie/?page_id=1181), In the Steps of St. Finbarre , Generations, Memories of the Lee Hydro Scheme and Inheritance, Heritage and Memory in the Lee Valley, Co. Cork.
My articles on the River Lee, 2009-2011, are blogged.
