"You might try mcostell@mayococo.ie..library local histories.  I woul bet there are lots of Sullivans in Mayo currently but they might narrow down Kilgarvan.   Good Luck"

Fascinating, Jim. We really need to introduce you to our colleague Kieron Punch. He's a member, so perhaps you can look him up and reach out. You'd have a fair amount to share! He's a keen student of The Great War and Ireland's freedom struggle among other things.

My own family on my father's side were in the Military and ser ved in most of the major conflicts of the 19th and 2oth centuries, from the Zulu Wars to both Boer Wars and both World Wars, my great great grandfather and great grandfather served with pricess Charlotte's Regiment which became The Berkshire, then the Royal Berkshire Regiment, my great grandfather transferred to The Connaught Rangers, I only found this out last year when I went back to Ballina after 30 years, I also found out that my grandfather and great uncles were quite local celebs, playing for The Ballina Stephenites, who won The Croke Cup in 1908/09 (Irish football)

Sheila, Kieron is definitely someone who would enjoy hearing about this. Hope he finds it. How far back have you been able to trace your ancestry?

Hi Ryan:

The "send" button seems to be stuck.

I'd be delighted to respond to questions. Fire away.

I have just received an unexpected surprise via e-mail from Ryan O'Rourke, informing me that I have won a copy of "The Galway Stories" - to say that I am delighted is an understatement! Rhetorical question, strictly tongue in cheek "Is it possible to become Irish by association?". Greetings to all,

Hi all

I have just read 'Setting the Truth Free' by Julieann Campbell (Liberties Press, Dublin, 2012) which I ordered via the Internet on the recommendation of Keith Harkin of the Celtic Thunder Group. I am aware it is not a weighty, intellectual tome, but found it immensely moving, and would be interested in the responses/opinions of any TWG members who may have read it

Rose, might you review the book for us, so we can learn more about it, using your personal blog on WG. I've not heard of the book, though now I'm intrigued by your findings.

At 3:19am on May 22, 2013, Rose Maurer said…

Hi Ger

I would be happy to do so, given a spot of time.

At 10:35am on May 22, 2013, Gerry Regan said…

Looking forward to getting your more protracted view of the book, then, Rose. Go raibh mile maith agat!

At 11:49am on May 23, 2013, Sheila Lucy Hemmings said…

Hello Gerry, sorry I have just seen your reply to my post, so far I have only been able to find put about my great great grandfather who would have been born around 1812, then my great grandfather, and grandfather. I believe that the Boshell family originated in Alsace Lorraine and came to England first presumably after the Revolution, but I am still working on that, my great grandmother's family, the McLaughlins originated in Donegal I believe and I will be looking into that when I go over to Ballina in August.
