No, it’s not the Bridget Jones from the international book and film series – but Laois’s Bridget Jones who will be writing about her own treasured memories of Ballaghmore.
‘Ballaghmore, Collected Memories’, by Bridget Jones, will be launched in the Community Hall on Sunday, December 16, at 3pm.
The book contains many articles on the history of Ballaghmore, detailed family genealogies of the nineteen townlands.
Photos of school groups and sports teams will also feature generations of people from Ballaghmore.
Bridget, née Scully, researched the history of her native place and interviewed many people for her book.
It will be available in local shops and from members of the Scully family.
