Memorial for Melosina

Melosina Lenox-Conyngham, who died last autumn, was a well-known broadcaster, and writer who lived in Kilkenny. Melo loved to travel both in Ireland and further afield. and many of the articles she wrote which appeared in, amongst other publications, Ireland of the Welcomes, Cara and The Irish Times and her broadcasts on Sunday Miscellany reflected this in her own humorous style.

Melo loved walking. The walk along the river from Lavistown to Bennettsbridge was one of her favourites.

Her family and friends plan to commemorate her life by placing a solid stone bench inscribed with her name and dates on the bank of the river Nore just below Lavistown.

This bench will be in place by the summer and it is hoped will further enhance the Nore Valley Walk and provide extra pleasure for the increasing number of people using the lovely network of walking trails in the Kilkenny area. Anyone who would like to contribute to The Melosina Memorial Fund should send a cheque to Gillian Butler at Cooltrand, Bennettsbridge. If funds raised exceed the cost of the bench the extra money will be donated to The Irish Cancer Society’s ‘Action Breast Cancer Fund’.
