The Irish in America

Ireland Reaching Out: The Newsletter


More on the Clancy family of Moylough, County Galway coming up, but first I wanted to share something I found in my inbox this morning.

Click here to get the latest information and updates on the Ireland Reaching Out program of south-east Galway.

If you live in one of the parishes involved in this pilot program, you obviously are aware of the efforts to connect with members of the Diaspora throughout the world.

Some of the parishes involved…



Clostoken & Kilconieran


Fohenagh & Killure

Gort & Kiltartan

If you can trace your Irish ancestry to any of these parishes in south-east County Galway, contact I am sure they would be delighted to hear from you…

Please leave a comment if you would like to share any information about the IRO program, searching for your Irish roots, or tracing a relative who emigrated to the US.  We would love to hear what you have to say!

Read the first edition of the IRO newsletter here.

My heritage pretty much covers the map of Ireland: great-great-grandparents from Cork (Crowley, Foley, Regan), a great-great-grandmother from Clare (Quinn), a great-great-grandfather from Fermanagh (McMahon) and his wife's parents from Mayo (McAndrew), a great-grandmother from Connemara (Hannon) married to my great-grandfather from Laois (McCormack), great-grandparents from Sligo (Flannery), and a great-grandmother from Kildare (Hill). All of those people ended up in Minnesota, where my four grandparents were born. Three and four generations after my people left Ireland for America, I retain all Irish heritage. So much for the melting pot...
