I’m not talking about providing anything costly or elaborate like a visitor centre or a major monument because a simple plaque would suffice. It could prove to be a major hit given that we are taking about one of the biggest ever movie and TV franchises.
Killarney Star Trek enthusiast Peter Clayton, who wants to commemorate the birth, several hundred years from now, of Chief Miles O’Brien. Battle bridge controller O’Brien, played by actor Colm Meaney in both the Deep Space Nine and Next Generation movies, is one of the most instantly recognisable characters, alongside Captain Kirk, Mr Spock, Scotty and Data.
According to the scripts, Chief O’Brien is born in Killarney, on the Planet Earth, in September 2328 and claims to be a direct descendent of Brian Boru. Which explains his accent. Sort of.
