HI NICE TO HEAR FROM YOU!I I live in Argentina and work in Dublin in July, travel with my stdents to our partner school CES in Dublin. I reun the O'Keefe school of English in La Plata  and love my Irish roots

My dad was  born to Carlos Eduardo O'Keefe son of Daniel O'Keefe and Margaret Fitzgerald and grandchild of Dennis O'Keefe ( born in Ireland ) married to mary Prindable . They came to Argentina in 1886.

My father married Maria teresa Bird Dolan,

my mum's mum was Sofia Teresa Dolan Murray, her grandfather was William Dolan Brown ( born in 1847 in co. Longford married to Elena Murray  They arrived in Argentina in 1865

one of my mum's once removed cousins, Passionist Reverend Louis Dolan Kehoe  ( NEW YORK) 11.3.1921- 15-10-2000 son of Juan Jose Dolan Murray, visited Ireland many times and left a letter telling us he met in MOATE CO Westmeath Pat and Betty Dolan, who lived in meyvoughly. Moate westmeath  Pat's grand father was >LUIs's grandfather's brother .

I ve never met any relative of mine when in Ireland though I've been travelling to the island since 1994, and next year I would love to meet some meember of my ancient tribe!!!! hope you will be able to help me. Looking forward to hearing from you, Maureen O'Keefe   www.okeefeschool.com.ar

Dear Mr. Devine, may I call you Bit?  Thank  you for the lovely welcome, what a delightful surprise.  Although I am presently living in Pinetop I am a Brooklyn, New York lady.  Miss the east especially the wonderful PEOPLE, THEY ARE THE GREATEST.  Goal to get back perhaps Rhode Island.  I wonder can I send a photo to the Astoria, Queens address and can someone just add it on your  site?.  Hate to admit not sure how to  e-mail from my camera. Your website is so interesting I haven't had a chance to look at it all but loved the Connemara Castles and each article interesting and of course being Irish CHARMING.  CAN THE IRISH BE ANYTHING ELSE.  BEST WISHES. CHERYL .

Hi Bit! Good to see you here - I was asked to join WG by Gerry and am just now setting up my account. I did make it to the Aran Islands last summer for a 'research' trip :-) and hope to get out there again this Spring to film, do you recognise this place in the photo?
