My sister Regan and I just returned from three weeks in Ireland. It was a great trip with the perfect blend of business, sightseeing, family, and relaxation. In upcoming posts I will share all the details about the fantastic folks we met and places we visited.
Our first stop was Dublin, where we met up with the lovely Eileen Munnelly, the managing director of Irish Lives Remembered genealogy magazine and website. It is great to meet face-to-face with someone you have emailed and tweeted with for months. Within minutes I felt as though I had known Eileen for years. Thanks for the great day in Dublin, Eileen.
The October issue of Irish Lives Remembered Genealogy Magazine is available now. Click here to take a look. This month’s issue features an article by Jayne Shrimpton – Investigating Irish Family Photographs – a crash course in identifying and dating those family photos in your collection.
Ancestors from County Sligo? Turn to page 28 for the special section with an article on tracing your Sligo roots, a story on the Sligo town that died, and information on the Gathering 2013, Sligo-style. And don’t forget to check out my article exploring my great-grandmother’s connection to Manchester, England on page 50.

Thank you for this post. I am glad to (virtually) meet Eileen and Irish Lives Remembered. The magazine sounds wonderful, and congratulations on your article!
In our family, we have yet to find information about our ancestor who probably emigrated from Ireland. All we have is a name and two dates that put him in Maryland. I have to get on that project! I was in touch with someone at the National Library a few years ago, with a will and a date and a hopeful new spelling of the man’s name. [I had learned that “Maurice” in Ireland was pronounced and thus probably spelled as “Morris” in the United States.]
Thank you for reminding me of this source. I believe Terri O’Connell also had an article published in Irish Lives Remembered, not so long ago?
