Ballyorril – A history of Ballyorril from 1628 – 2000 AD

We are delighted to be able to announce the publication of the newly revised version of Ben’s publication “Ballyorril”!

This is a history Ballyorril from the year 1628 to the year 2000AD and includes stories of how a king of England camped on Ballyorril Hill and how a friend and relative of Cromwell owned Ballyorril at one time.

Illustrated with maps, photographs and lists of all who are known to have owned it and lived there, this publication is an informative and interesting read for anyone who has an interest in Cromwell, kings of England and especially Enniscorthy in County Wexford, Ireland and of course Ballyorril itself.

What Must I Do To Be Saved?

“What must I do to be saved?” is a question that has been asked by so many over the years and indeed is a question that I would suggest needs to be asked by each and every one of us.

In his publication “What Must I Do To Be Saved?” Bane carefully and compassionately tackles this question and provides relevant and important commentary to anyone considering this essential question.
