My Irish heritage can be found in the soils of Belfast, Tipperary, Roscommon on my Maternal great-great-grandparents. All but one of my great-grandparents was born in the United States. Ironically my last name comes from my mostly Polish father's side...My paternal great-great-grandfather was from Ireland. I am descended from O'Neill's, Gowdy's, Crogan's, Dougherty's, Downing's, Pfife's, Scanlon's, McDermott's and Condon's so far! Yearly, the descendants of my maternal grandfather, Thomas F Gowdy get together. We refer to ourselves as the "Gowdy Girls, For Sure For Sure". Tee-shirts do exist and women and men alike wear them proudly!!
