    Is there ANY way broadband could be brought to the area? With remote working, there might be SOME way of adding income to a small job already in the area. It is such a tragedy to lose a community completely.

    My mother is Bairbre Hughie Sheian Bhreathnaigh from Doire Iorrais. The house she was born in is literally across the road from Loch con Aortha. I live in Chicago now, but spent a lot of time there as a child.

    Hello all I have just watched your wonderful programme on TG4 thankfully with subtitles, congratulations to you for deciding to act!!! How can I help? have you ever thought of creating a "friends of Loch con Aortha? I am originally from Courtmacsherry in Co. Cork but have lived in the UK for many years, your programme touched me and if you have any initiatives that you take to raise funds or the very important issues of emigration please let me know Kind Regards Anthony O' Neill Its very strange but i have no Irish but just listening to the language stirs my soul!!!
