Thanks Gerry. It took me awhile to figure out how to reply. Love my Irish genealogy. Know more about the line from Kerry (Sullivan, Fitzgerald, McDonnell). But also have a line from Tyrone (Loughran, Morrow, Mackle) Love reading all the stories. But haven't snooped much yet. Thanks again..
Sorry I'm not related to Ed Shevlin who has made quite a name for himself through his natural talent and personality and good works ... at least not in recent generations. My career (I'm 80) was in intelligence, security and federal law enforcement. Now I'm getting deeper into Irish history, culture and genealogy studies. My roots go back to the Ardara area of SW Donegal where the name is usually spelled Shovlin or Shovelin (originally O'Seibhleain). All my grandparents or greatgrandparents were born in Ireland (Shovelin, Breslin, McCool, Dwyer, Conway, Boylan, McLoughlin, Flanagan). I've driven all over Ireland on several trips, but at 80 I can't hire a car for myself and where I like to go there isn't much public transport. "Too soon we get old; too late we get smart!"
Gerry, thank you for your comments on Ghost of Gallipoli. As a new member of The Wild Geese I'm still getting my head around the format and finding out exactly what I can do on the site. I'm hoping to promote Ghost of Gallipoli further as soon as I get to grips with it all. Margaret
Delighted to be a member and looking forward to contributing from here in Northern Israel.
We were at the Gathering and later traveled all over Donegal. A great and beautiful county and thank you to all the Donegalers for trying to give me Kosher food. The pratai were great. Why can't I do the fadas here? Sorry you lost the football game to Cavan but there you go, at least Donegal Creameries got good advertising.
Gerry, I can get to the ICS profile through a non-member computer. Of course my material is stored on my computer. Any way to allow a member computer to sign in to the ICS profile so that I can add content? A member page has no sign in capability. Thanks.
