Information sought on Peddler of Ballaghaderreen.
I am a storyteller in Milwaukee Wisconsin. I tell a story by Ruth Sawyer called the Peddler of Ballaghaderreen which has some roots from a storyteller named John Hegarty. I understand it comes from an earlier Hebrew based tale.
My I request is of your time for some history of the town and discriptions of the landsape surrounding Ballaghaderreen 150 years in the past, and if available a little about the road from there to Dublin in the mid 1800’s.
I thank you very kindly for your time. I will credit any names and sourses you are willing to share.
All the best,
