On this day in 1891, the first gasoline-powered car debuts in Springfield, Massachusetts, United States.
Today, the town of Boyle mourns the passing of one of her finest sons, Fergus Ahern. I am happy to have known and admired him since moving here. His contribution to the development of the Arts and fabric of the community of Boyle cannot be measured easily. His passing is a great loss to us all. My sincere condolences to his wife Marian and his Family.
I took this shot of the great man during the Boyle Arts Festival back in 2009.
Apologies for my absence these past few days.
