49Sheehan, Jeramiah et.al. Beneath the Shadow of Uisneach: Ballymore & Boher, Co., Westmeath: Ballymore-Boher History Project, 1996. 390.
From "Reminiscences of Jack Stokes (1888-1985)." Elsewhere in the book is the suggestion that Charles Stewart Parnell also attended a political event at Uisneach. Perhaps it is not a coincidence that local lore (as recounted in the book) suggessts that on a clear day the top of Parnell's monument in Dublin may be seen from the apex of the Hill of Uisneach.
