Our educated guess is that Dr. Theodore Thaddeus Dominic O’Kelly came to Guatemala around 1696. He might be a surgeon from the ranks of the Jacobite Army that fought in Aughrim. According to his account, he was an Ulsterman born in Loughgall (County Armagh) around 1658.

Great Irish Romances: Joseph Plunkett and Grace Gifford

Posted by Susan McWilliams Lev-Yadun on February 7, 2014 at 3:00am 4 Comments

Of all the great men and women of that era, was there a more gallant figure than Joseph Mary Plunkett, or a more hopeless love than that of Plunkett and Grace Gifford? They were to be married in a church on St Stephen’s Green on April 23, Easter Sunday, 1916, but history…

As he got closer, he recognized it as a Rumpler.…
