He stands in bronze and he stands on granite,

Facing the river where the fleet turned tail;

The stone lists the Davis Guards upon it,

Names that rhyme in the songs of the Gael.*

Around 3:30…

Joe, where in Ireland do your people come from?

I have a McLaughlin line on my mother's side that we know was from Co. Cavan, but left way back in the 1830s. Gannon is a Mayo name, but we can only trace that side of the family back to a great-grandfather who was born in England, where they must of gone for work.

I ask because we have good friends in Connemara here who are Gannons.  There is a significant pocket of them in Leitir Móir, which is where our friends are from.
