A collection of rare ledgers and a bible relating to the Allihies Copper Mine, found in an attic of a house in Wales by members of the Puxley family. The ledgers were donated by the family to the Beara Historical Society a number of years ago.
The Allihies Copper Mine Museum website can be found here: acmm.ie
A grant from the Heritage Council has seen the books restored and are now on display at the museum.
Tadhg O Sullivan, Chairman of the Allihies Copper Mine would like to thank the Beara Historical society, The Heritage Council and all those involved in restoring them!
