Grass Cutting Service
I am coming to Ireland in April and am looking investigating some family history and visiting cemeteries.
I was looking for information on my grandfather’s family, the Leary/O’Leary family from the Dromtariffe Region. In particular, Cornelius Leary b.1831/1832, son of Cornelius Leary and Catherine O’Shea/Shea. Cornelius married Johanna Horgan and they came to Australia with Jeremiah and Catherine Leary in 1855.
I then came across a document titled From Dromagh to Sydney about the McMurtrie Family. My grandmother was a direct descendant of the family in this document. We never knew of a Irish connection.
I was hoping someone might be able to guide me in the direction of local cemeteries and records relating to theses two families?
