Famous People

For a parish the size of Dromin/Athlacca, it can claim to have given two government ministers in different administrations. From 1973-1977, Tom O'Donnell, Fine Gael was Minister for the Gaeltacht and from 1987-1989 Michael J. Noonan, Fianna Fáil was Minister for Defence.

James Cregan from Coolboy won the European Marathon Championship in Budapest, Hungry in 1966. Over his career, James won many Irish Championships but in 1960 he left Ireland to go to work in England. James changed his name to Jim Hogan because he believed that he could not compete legally in England as he had run under N.A.C.A. rules in Ireland.
