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,

John McGee
