Irish Roots

My Maternal Grandparents, Maria Nolan and Thomas Hughes

If you are a fan of Death on Clare Island‘s Star O’Brien, you know she is in County Mayo searching for her mother, who disappeared when Star was six years old. In Death at Ashford Castle, Star’s search continues with a visit to the National Archives of Ireland in Dublin. (Note: Ashford Castle should be out sometime in May; I will keep you posted).

In the meanwhile, for Star O’Brien fans who are interested in their Irish roots, check out the Irish government web site: https://www.irishgenealogy.ie. I count among the many blessings in my life, the opportunities I’ve had to get to know and spend time with my mother’s family (her siblings). Unfortunately, I never got to meet my grandparents (picture above). Maria was from Turlough and Thomas was from Carramore.

Keep the luv going, Martha
