My father was from Ballina, Co. Mayo, and though I was born and have lived all my life in England, I have always regarded Ireland as my home, I went back to Ballina last year after 30 years away, and found out a lot of my family history that I didn't know, my maiden name is Boshell, and my grandmother was a Grimes, my great grandmother a McLaughlin.

Hi, Sheila.  Just wanted to say welcome to The Wild Geese!  I think it's great that you came back to Ireland after so much time.  Hope to interact with you here in the future.

Hi Sheila: My mom is also from Mayo, under the shadow of Mt. Nephin. Her brother, my Uncle John, married a woman whose aunt, Mary Mangan, was lost on Titanic. My cousins were very involved in the commemoration of that tragedy last year in Lahardane and I spoke about that commemoration at several venues in New Jersey.

Welcome to the New Wild Geese and enjoy your "gathering."
