Judy Byrne

Judy Byrne fills us in on just some of the colourful characters that lived in James’s Green for the My Home Place series. Judy and her husband Ned own Sean Byrne’s bar on the Green. We hear about the slaughterhouses, the pound and memories of wonderful characters like Johnny Neary for example. My Home Place is a part of the Keep Well campaign, managed locally by Kilkenny County Council, and is being made in collaboration with the Heritage Office and Ossory Youth, whose team of young artists, under the tutelage of Youth Worker Joanne Moore are listening to the interviews and creating drawings from the imagery they hear in the piece.
