Some Words of Thanks

We have just returned to the US after a most memorable trip to the Millstreet area, where with the help of and Michael in particular we were able to make connections with third- and fourth-cousins in the Buckley family of Rathcoole and nearby. We learned a tremendous amount about the Buckleys and their history during this trip, but even more importantly we had the opportunity to meet a large number of wonderful people in the Rathcoole-Millstreet area, all of whom were as welcoming and helpful as they could be. We were very warmly embraced by Mary Buckley of Rathcoole and her beautiful family, and had the experience of a lifetime while we were there. and the members of the Millstreet area community can rightly be proud of the tremendous gifts they are giving to the area’s prodigal sons and daughters who are at last wandering home in search of their Irish roots.
