LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
West Cork Plane Crash
I am writing to you with regard to a letter, which appeared in your "Letters to the Editor" some time ago. The letter was in relation to a piece written by Ger O'Regan referring to a plane crash which happened in West Cork during the war. My grandmother is a sister-in-law to the late Bill Johnson who was the first person to raise the alarm on the night in question. She herself was born and raised in the area and was a young girl when the tragedy happened. She believes, to the best of her knowledge, that there are several references made in this letter which may be incorrect. The first of these is the name of the hill in the letter this is referred to as Cashelane Hill but has always been known to her as Keane Hill. There are other points she felt were a little mixed up also and I'm sure that if Ger was interested she would be able to put him on the right track with regard to this very interesting story. Any correspondence can be made through me at the above address.
