  1. It was good to meet you today in the Parish Records office. Thank you for your time and chat about our search for family. We now have the documents of both my Mother and Father which we are so delighted to own. We were also able to locate the grave of my Grandmother, Mary O’Regan which was also the grave of my Aunt and Uncle, Maude and Dan. I hope one day to return and have time to find living relatives, but for now a huge thank you for all you did.
