Death ends a life. But it does not end a relationship, which struggles on in the survivor's mind, toward some resolution, which it may never find. -- The character Gene Garrison in the film "I Never Cried for My Father"

His body gleams amid eternal snows,

I am an uncoronated family historian for the extended Regan and Condon clans, despite being adopted as an infant into my family. I have the incurable family history bug. My families of origin include O’Connors, Ryans and, on his first father’s side, Shiman, so I have plainly got my work cut out for him. Catch up me with also at www.GerRegan.com, where I have a large and growing collection of blog posts, photos and videos on all my passions -- family history, the arts, photography, bike touring, and more. I also provide editing, writing and proofreading services to businesses, organizations and individuals via Edit360.biz -- Putting Your Words To Work.
There are four derivations of it that I know of- Shiels, Sheils, Shields and Sheilds and they appear to be the same name but with the usual split in the spelling once it began to be written down- ultimately I think we are all of the same stock no matter where our 'd' is!
This is awesome. Just flew back from San Diego, so I'll explore this more after I've rested my eyes some. Well done!
I have been brought up with a sense of belonging. I come from a Canadian Ulster Scot family on my father's side. My Gran always exposed me to the culture, the language, the customs, history and the heritage of both Ireland and Scotland. I felt a sense of coming home from the first time I stepped out into the peat air in Shannon. I had a sense of "knowing" as the Ferry pulled into the dock at Cill Rónáin. It is that which I try to speak to within my photography and writings
Bit, can you share with us some of your written work, as well? Where is Cill Rónáin?
Gerry .. Thanks for making me feel so welcome. My people are in Kilteevan, Carrowban and Ballinaboy, Roscommon. There's a well known restaurant called Regan's in Roscommon town .. any relation? (Excellent Lamb Chops!)
My lucky day. Thanks for the welcome. My address is
I look forward to rocking.
Talking with those Galwegians on Wednesday was fun. Thanks for hosting the event.
Thanks, Ger. I'm rather up to my ears at the moment promoting the new paperback edition of The House on an Irish Hillside and completing work on my new novel. But I'm delighted to be here, looking forward to keeping in touch, and I'll do some quick uploads now while I've time.
