AT the State Funeral for Thomas Kent in Castlelyons

It took 99 years for patriot Thomas Kent to receive the recognition he deserved - but his contribution to Irish freedom will be remembered following the State funeral in his home village in Castlelyons.

UCC historians Gabriel Doherty and John Borgonovo had a busy few days explaining on local and national media the significance of Thomas Kent.   We have put together a Storify to give a flavour of the media coverage
