There has been many discussions about how many of the Spanish Amada sailors that washed ashore on Ireland.  Many say only about 100 survived the British.  I had been told by my mother and my grandmother that they were descendants of one of those that survived in 1588.  Are there any records of the names of them?  The name my mother was told was Don Llueva, which over time change to DunLeavy.  Over the years in Ireland the family settle in Longford, were my grandmother was born.  Her name was Ann Marie DonLeavy daughter of Owen DonLeavy and Brigit Farrell,  e believe Brigit Farrell was born in 1842 in Longford and passed away in 1905 in Brooklyn, NY, USA,

If anyone can help find any info on this family it would be fantastic.  Thanks

One more thing, my middle daughter wants to et her Irish citizenship, are there any info that would help.
