  1. Hello,
    My great grand mum was from Bally Dally, I’m not sure if that in in county Kerry or Cork. I have always been facinated by Gaelic since I was little and heard my Grand mum and great grand mum have their conversations. It’s too bad I never got the chance to learn from her, because she was a wonderful person.
    Anyway, she did teach me one thing to always say, and that is Sláinte.

    Nollaig shona dhaoibh!

    Thank you for this. I received the answer to my question very quickly. I haven’t gotten the opportunity to look over all of the info you have yet. I basically stumbled upon your website after learning about my clan, castle and Title. My lineage is more Scottish on my Fraternal Grandmother’s side. However, my husbands lineage is mostly Irish. He knows nothing about it. Nor is his interest like mine. But, we have two children with the last name ‘Bailey’. I can offer them a Title of a Duchess and an Earl. I’m very curious to see combined, with or Title’s how or what their future will hold. I want them to always have some places they can get too that is safe and away. I’m curious about a lot of things bc our great- grandparents were the immigrants.

  3. I wanted to put you a little remark to finally thank you so much once again over the remarkable basics you have documented on this website. This has been quite unbelievably generous of people like you to allow easily all that a few individuals could have supplied for an e-book to earn some profit on their own, notably now that you could have tried it in the event you decided. Those creative ideas as well served like the great way to know that some people have the same passion similar to my very own to know the truth a little more with respect to this condition. I think there are thousands of more enjoyable moments in the future for individuals that see your site.

      1. Hello, I am first American of my family. My Mum was from Belfast , born in 1914. Her Mum was a Simmons and her father was a Johnston. A very rough childhood for Mum , her family eventually migrated to Canada. Her father was a military officer as many of the Johnston clan were. I would love to know more of my family history as I feel the Irish blood in my veins. My father was from Birmingham England so unfortunately my Mum was disowned when she married(English)and I never got to meet my grand parents. I did meet one of eight of her brothers , Patrick . Occasionally Mum would start a bit of Gaelic and I could not understand her. Heck , if she were with her Irish friends and they got to talking I couldn’t keep up with her English! Harry Spittle
