  • Hi Claire,

    My sister took this photo of the Fahys & Stephen Lee.

    Sorry but I doubt there is any connection to your photo because our Duffys came from Roscommon.

    My father & his brother came to the U.S. in 1915.

  • I have a very similar photograph but my grandfather John Duffy is in it! I’m trying to trace more about my Irish heritage and family. I only found out that John was my actual grandfather a few years ago!( long story) He never married and died in 1986. Can anyone help me? I believe he had many nieces and nephews that emigrated to America. His mother was Honor or “Nora”

  • Hi Chris,

    The photo above was taken in 1962 at the home of John Fahy and his sister Bridget in Gortachalla.

    Mary Connell’s parents were John Connell and Honor Hart. Honor Hart is reputed to have come from the island of Innismicatreer in Lough Corrib.

  • Can anyone give an approximate date for the photo? My Connells were from Gortachalla. Do you know who Mary Connell’s parents were? Also, Sarah Connell, from Gortachalla and daughter of Patrick Connell and Sarah Tierney, was married to a Mr. Lee. Possibly related to Stephen Lee in photo?

  • The “Fahy’ s in this picture are children of Peter Fahy, who married Mary Connell of Gortachalla, Moycullen and son of John (Sean Ruadh) Fahy and Mary Carter of Gortacarnaun. Peter was half-brother to Honor Fahy Moloney, (Patrick) Shrue and Bridget Fahy O’Connor, Camp Street, Oughterard.

  • How wonderful. I want more. The picture of the Sacred Heart on the wall is in my home now. I got it during a trip to Ireland in 1988.
