Julie Thomas from New Zealand Tracing Millstreet Roots & Denis’s Successful Research

Julie Thomas from Wellington, New Zealand has been in Millstreet for the past few days completing research for her book "Seven-eighths Irish". Julie is a great, great, great Grand-daughter of Andrew Dennehy of Millstreet. (Seán)

It’s quite amazing how we’ve have had two people from New Zealand tracing Millstreet roots over the past few days – Fr. Bernard Dennehy on Tuesday and now Julie on Thursday.   Incidentally, our very good Friend,  Denis Murphy of Cahirdowney, Millstreet,  successfully carried out research as to

where Fr. Bernard’s grandfather lived.   Apparently it happened to be located across the road from Keim Quarry on the lands of the Healy Family.   The Dennehy Family moved to Cork city later.   If you wish to view further images when Fr. Bernard met Denis and many others both in Millstreet and at  picturesque Cahirdowney on Tuesday – here is a selection.    (Seán)
