Coat of arms for Limerick City

Coat of arms for County Limerick

King John's Castle at night time, Limerick city

Trying to forget for a moment that Co. Limerick's name means "barren spot of land", Limerick isn't all bad. In fact, it's really quite a beautiful place filled with history, quaint cottages and gorgeous mountains, as well as the River Shannon. Idolised Irish writer, Frank McCourt immortalised the squalor and poverty of life in Limerick City during the 1930s and '40s in his enduring novel, Angela's Ashes - and Limerick has been battling the negative image ever since.

In truth, most of Co. Limerick is a haven of peace and quiet, with a rather underrated spread of landscape and historical sites. The Ardagh Chalice, an 8th-century silver cup, is –  along with the Book of Kells – considered to be one of the finest pieces of Celtic art in existence. Though now on display in the National Museum in Dublin, the chalice was uncovered in Ardagh, Co. Limerick by two potato-diggers in the 1860s. In Limerick, the Hunt Museum’s vast collection of antiquities – ranging from stone age Irish relics to Picasso sketches – and the contemporary art found in The Limerick City Gallery of Art showcase the region’s rich cultural heritage.

Perhaps the most imposing historic landmark in the city, King John’s Castle is a well-preserved Norman fortress found beside the River Shannon, the story of which is well illustrated at its excellent visitor centre. Also situated at the water’s edge is The University of Limerick. The first university to be established in Ireland since the country gained independence in 1922, its founders adopted US practices such as GPA-style marking and a trimester-based teaching year.  

Limerick is known as a hotspot for sport in Ireland (it’s the only Irish city to be named a European City of Sport), and Munster – the well-loved provincial rugby team – are famous for their atmospheric home games at Thomond Stadium. The venue also hosts football matches and pop concerts; the likes of Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan have graced the stage. South of the river, Limerick Greyhound Stadium – complete with bar and restaurant – hosts dog races on Thursdays and Saturdays. Covering a large part of the Shannon Estuary, Limerick is also a popular place for boating and sailing.

Further afield, the town of Adare is widely considered to be one of the most picturesque villages in Ireland, with several wonderful examples of thatched-roof cottages. Likewise, Lough Gur is a pre-Celtic archaeological site with stone circles – including the largest in Ireland – and a megalithic tomb. The lakeside Lough Gur Heritage Centre brings the area’s history, archaeology and folklore to life with interactive exhibitions and audio guides.

Curraghchase Forest Park is home to a modern ruin: the shell of a stately house burned down by accident in the 1940s. The surrounding 313 hectare park is peppered with lakes, walking trails, and archaeological sites, and also features an arboretum brimming with trees from the region and beyond. Ideal for small-scale adventures, the half-acre Terra Nova Garden in Dromin is a magical spot; one corner is overrun with elves and fairies, which children will love to discover.

Every county in Ireland has its own festival and these run from January through to December. Among the highlights on the Wild Atlantic Way are I.NY, and the Richard Harris Festival, held in Limerick in October. These are part of the Global Irish Festival Series, a Government initiative celebrating stories, theatre, film and music, both homegrown and created by members of the Irish Diaspora with deep roots in this country.

Among Limerick's most famous sons and daughters are Éamon de Valera, one of the founding fathers of the Republic of Ireland, who was raised in Brulee, and Dolores O'Riordan, lead singer of The Cranberries.

(Part 1 of 3) The Collins name has a long history in British Isles, but now DNA and some recorded history says their origin is from the Emerald Island. The Collins story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup B2] can trace their origins to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Collins surname origin is from Clan Domnaill [DNA Tribe R1b-L513, Subgroup B1] and relations who remain in Ireland take the modern surname (O’)Donnelly, McDonald and Donohue in Ireland.

Anthony Barrett

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Domnaill name is also found in Brittany, France. It is a very old name which appears in the 5th century Roman inscriptions as Dumnovellaunos in Brittany meaning “Deep Valour” equivalent to Irish Domhnaill. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Collins story begins in pre-history Ireland then members of his family move to Wales where the family can be traced back to their Welsh tribe Cydifor Fawr. Many of his kin will then move to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

What I know is that my father's grandparents came over into Ellis Island sometime between appx 1898-1903 and settled in NY. My grandma married James Murphy, who I believe came from Ruth DeWald and Benjamin Murphy.

My first name is Kelly because I was named after my Nana's maiden name which was Kelly from her Father. So the names I have are Patrick Kelly from Dublin probably around the 1900s I'm guessing.

Sullivan

MY Great Grandfather was Daniel Sullivan. He came to Victoria Australia c1860. Records say he was born 1840 in County Cork (no details). He was RC and married a Protestant so had two weddings on the same day at Port Fairy, Victoria I believe this was fairly common to keep both families reasonably happy. . Both Certificates say his father was John Sullivan. The RC one says his mother was Mary Kennedy - the C of E one says his mother was Julia Manning. Makes it virtually impossible to find which Daniel Sullivan he was and from which part of County Cork he was from. I have a list of Daniel Sullivans born in County Cork and marriages of a John with Mary Kennedy and Julia Manning but can't pin him down. Any suggestions.

My great great grandfather was Roger Sullivan of County Kerry; left in May 1848 on the Swan out of Cork with wife Catherine Moynihan. Died in Warren County, NY, early 20th century. Had several (11?) children, among them John R. (my great grandfather), Patrick and Joanna (died young, buried in St Mary's Cemetery in South Glens Falls, NY, with Roger and Catherine). I have not been able to find much else. John R's wife, my great grandmother Anna Stack Sullivan, also had parents who emigrated, I presume during the Famine, but I can't find anything about her parents other than census records stating they were born in Ireland.

Cherilyn Carroll

Hello Gail Ryan, you wrote this to a Jenny Miller (no dates). "My great-grandfather Patrick Ryan and great-grandmother Bridget Treacy came from Borrisoleigh, and also emigrated to Queensland in ~1880. They got off the boat in Townsville, and spent their lives in Charters Towers. Perhaps we are related - Borrisoleigh is not a huge town!! My name is Cherilyn, my maiden name Cherilyn Ryan. My great-grandfather (Michael Ryan) was the twin brother of Patrick Ryan, your g-grandfather. My g-grandfather's name was Thomas Ryan and he married Anne Russell in June 1899 (or it may be 1880 - hard to tell), in Borrisoleigh, Tipperary. The town seems to be spelt differently sometimes - Borrisleigh. Sometime after that date in 1899/ 1880, the twin brothers, Thomas and Patrick, came to Townsville, North Queensland, Australia. I know my grandfather's side of the family, i.e. his parents Thomas and Anne Ryan, lived on a cattle property/ station at Calcium/ Reid River/ Toonpan/ Woodstock area - all tiny little places, more like localities really. My grandfather, and in turn my father were both born at Calcium. Woodstock is the largest village and does have a tiny school, but not even a pub! Those areas are not too far south of Townsville (now a city of 150,000 or so). Some of the Ryan's still live on that original property - there are four houses of Ryan's still remaining there. Personally, I don't know them. On my grandfather's (Michael Ryan's) birth certificate, his father Thomas Ryan's occupation is listed as lime-burner. I can't find anything that may relate to Thomas and Patrick's parents or siblings though, those who remained in Ireland, or Thomas and Patrick's dates of birth. I also can't find the date they emigrated to Australia. I was wondering if you had any information on them at all? Perhaps a photo of Thomas and Patrick together, I wonder if they were identical twins. Your g-grandparents, as far as I can tell, lived in and around Townsville all their lives, Charters Towers is quite a bit further away, well in those days of horse and cart anyway - 137km away. Gold was found in Charters Towers at one stage and perhaps they went off to the gold fields for a time. On your side of the family - I have a small "The Ryans - Family History" booklet regarding the offspring of Patrick and Bridget, formerly Tracy (spelt that way in the booklet). They had 9 children, and this particular booklet, it says, was "compiled for the Ryan Family Reunion, 27th September 1997". One of my father's aunts must have given it to me, and some of them must have kept in contact with their cousins - your side of the family. This booklet then goes on to name and give commentary on Patrick and Bridget's third born (May 1885 in Townsville), their son Thomas Patrick Ryan, who married an Alice Isabell MacDonald. It appears they had 12 children!! Your g-grandfather Patrick's occupation was listed as labourer when his son Thomas Patrick was born, according to the booklet. There are two photos in the booklet of your g-grandfather Patrick Ryan and his wife Bridget Ryan, no date on the photo though. There is also another photo of your grandfather (4 generations it says), dated 1939. Anyway, I was wondering if you could help me with any more history of on g-grandfather Thomas Ryan and his twin brother Patrick Ryan. As an aside, lime was found on that property at Calcium, also a large cattle station, and it was called the Ryan Lime Company. To this day, lime is still quarried there, but no longer owned by the Ryan's. The quarrying operation was sold decades ago and my grandfather and grandmother (Michael and Eileen Ryan) moved to Brisbane in the 1940's and built a number of shops and a small supermarket (there were no large ones back in the day) in an inner suburb of Brisbane (Queensland's capital). I have also travelled to Ireland in 1979 (and again in 2019, 40 years later). My boyfriend and I, now husband, went to see my grandfather's cousin in 1979, we were with an Irish mate in Nenagh, Tipperary (my boyfriend worked with him in London), whose mother knew my grandfather's cousin - a small world. They had a lovely home on a farm, a quite large double story house - sadly, I can't remember their names, but they lived quite close to Nenagh, where our mate came from. Anyway, this thread doesn't seem to have any dates or years on it, so hopefully I'm not writing this and it goes off into the never, never! Cheers.

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Dáirine will join with the Dál Riata of north-east Ireland and invade Scotland around 500 CE. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Ryan story begins in pre-history Ireland but many of his descendants will then move to Kintyre, Scotland where they and other R1b-L513 members will form the Dalriada. This line and many of his kin will then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

I was a bit surprised that County Cavan was not mentioned unless other Crrolls migrated there. What might have been their County of origin? Like another entry, my maternal grandmother's dad, James Carroll, Jr., was born in County Cavan. His DOBnwas November 11, 1833 in Maudabawn, Cootehill, Drumgoon Parish, County Cavan, Ulster Province, Ireland While Co Cavan is in Ulster Province it is part of the Republic of Ireland and not of Northern Ireland.

I want to connect with Carroll family Limerick. I have done a lot of 'digging' for information but there are gaps. Do you have a connection to Thomas William Carroll born 17/3/1879, Poona, India. His sister was Ellen Carroll born 6/4/1875, Deesa, India. She is my grandmother. Their mother was Mary who married Thomas Carroll a soldier in India and later married John Dowrie, also a soldier, in India. They retruned to live in Dixons Lane in limerick. The gap is who is Mary an how she was in India. Anybody????

For VirginiaKathleen look at my addition to above text re the synonymous usage of Lynchahan and Lynch in 19th century Registers in Inishowen, Donegal, as noted by the Register General Matheson in his Varieties Synonymes of Surnames...in Ireland 1901. This means a strong likelihood of Donegal Lynches being O Loingseachain, especially taken together with the comments of Woulfe, supra.

My mother always told me we were descended from the Galway Lynches, but her mother Katherine Bridget Lynch and her 7 siblings were born in Moville, Co. Donegal. Her father, Edward Lynch, was a marine engineer, and her mother, Katherine McLaughlin, was a District Nurse. They resided on Quay St. and sadly, died at young ages, when my grandmother was 9 leaving 8 orphaned children 5 of which were minors. They went to live in a Catholic orphanage across the Bay of Inishowen in Derry. My grandmother immigrated to NY and Brooklyn in 1911. Later married John Barr of Ballymacarthur, Donegal. Hello...

Lynching is attributed to Charles Lynch 17361796, an American Revolutionary who headed a Virginia court punishing supporters of the British. I prefer the story I was passed down, that it originates from a Mayor of Galway, James Lynch, who hung his son from the balcony of his house in 1493.

John Walsh was my grandad, he came over from Ireland to London, where I was born. He grew up in a home and so his heritage is slightly shrouded in history, especially on his Dad's side - whoever he may have been. Some secret. He was born in Dublin, was sent to Cork, and then found himself in Galway. That's when he met my Nanny Norah and eventually came over here to London.

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Domnaill name is also found in Brittany, France. It is a very old name which appears in the 5th century Roman inscriptions as Dumnovellaunos in Brittany meaning “Deep Valour” equivalent to Irish Domhnaill. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Walsh story begins in pre-history Ireland then moves to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages. Guy de Sancto Wallerico’s ancestor joined the Normans and invaded England in 1066. In 1128, he is granted lands in south Wales.

(Part 1 of 3) You may say the Walsh surname is not of Irish origin, but Welsh and Norman (from Normandy, France). But now DNA and some recorded history says otherwise. DNA tells us the origin of Walsh is as Irish as they come. The Walsh story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup B2] can trace their origins to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Walsh surname origin is from Clan Domnaill [DNA Tribe R1b-L513, Subgroup B1] and relations who remain in Ireland take the modern surname (O’)Donnelly and McDonald in Ireland.

My father, Joseph McCarthy told me that his grandfather - also Joseph McCarthy was born in Lucan County, Ontario in 1854. His father Joe came over from the potato famine/genocide, but back in Ireland the genealogy trail runs dry. The McCarthys of Ontario were involved in the famous Donnelly massacre, and moved very shortly after to Chicago, where my grandfather was born. No-one was ever accused of the crime - everybody hated the Donnellys apparently.

Yes sonny canavan was famous for making bodhran drums and was the best at doing so, in which people from all around the world would travel to Ireland just to get their hands on one.

(Part 1 of 3) The McCarthy name has a long history in Ireland, but now DNA and some recorded history says the Kerry region of McCarthy’s has a separate origin from the McCarthy’s of Cork. The Kerry McCarthy story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup O2] can trace their beginnings to what is now County Kerry from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The McCarthy surname origin is possibly a branch of what will become the Dáirine [R1b-L513] who are found in south Ireland around 300 CE.

Hi, I am looking for details or information about John Casey 1805 1876 of Mullingar, Co. Westmeath, Ireland and his family, including forebares. The information I have located indicates he was born in Walshtown and lived in Conmoyle, both of which are townlands in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath. One of his sons lived at the townland of Bryanstown in Mullingar. Getting confirmed details beyond the late 1800 or 1700's is challenging. Oral tradition, supported by family members now in their nineties, says the Casey's were in Co. Westmeath and before that Co. Cork. The time of the move is uncertain.

My adoptive mother too, told me that my bio father, that Casey has a bit East Asian mixed, which are more common in Hawaii. But I just sight seeing here, so just in case, any one can advise me how to find more about our Irish ancestors, and whether there are any DNA tests projects, like the Jewish DNA tests projects.

I'm seeking any information on my GGgrandfather,Garrett Hogan said to have been born somewhere in Ireland around 1799. He left Ireland around 1818 on a ship and finished up in India. He joined the East India Company Army - raising to the rank of Sergeant. He married the widow of a fellow officer, who had 2 children. They went on to have 4 girls and 4 boys together. He never had any further contact with his family - It's claimed his father thought he had run away to Australia? Why Australia in 1818 - it was no more than a penal colony at the time. Maybe there were relatives of his who had already been sent to Australia as Convicts from Ireland. Any thoughts or help would be appreciated.

Hi, I've recently found the story of a certain Michael Hogan, sailor and businessman who traveled to Australia and India before settling down in New-York (USA). He is well known for being the founder of the city of Bombay (N-Y) close to the canadian border Cornwall (ontario). I think that my family could be related to this man and his followers. I know that he was from Co Cork...but there is not much informations available concerning his life in Ireland and what happened to his family after he passed away in New-York city around 1830. His son William was involved in politics in the USA, but I was wondering if other members of this family could have moved to Canada (Upper Canada at this time) around 1850-1860. Hope you can find some informations I don't have! Thanks!

My Great Great Grandfather was Edward OBrien b. 1830 or 1831. He left Ireland and came to Peterborough, Ontario Canada, probably around the 1850s. He married Bridget Heffernan in Peterborough on Feb 15, 1859. Ballyporeen, Tipperary and Cork appear on various documents. His death certificate lists Tipperary as his place of birth. I have found a lot of information on the Heffernans who came to Canada, but nothing about Edward OBrien.

Both are deceased. He got stationed in Augusta, Ga in 1959. We lived here ever since. I'm not sure about ancestors, except most were living in New Jersey. A story my grandfather told me, was that 2 brothers in his ancestry came to the states from Ireland. One became a bar owner, the other became a catholic priest. My father's mother died in child birth when he was 2 years old. My grandfather, John F Hickey, Sr. married Pauline (nee unknown)after that. He was in the navy, then worked and retired from the railroad. My father and mother were the only children in their immediate families. There was never much talk about family history, so I don't have much legacy to pass to my two sons.

My Great Great Grandparents, James and Honora (Taylor) Hickey, died (about 3 months apart) in 1846 in County Clare during the potato famine, leaving five children homeless. David, the oldest, came to America and worked to save money for his siblings to come. John, 13 and Thomas, 6 went to Scotland to tend sheep for $25. I do not know the name of the family that they worked for, nor who took in the two youngest, Catherine, about 2 or 3 and Margaret about 1. They were Catholics and maybe the church helped them, but I cannot find anything about that time before they came to America.

Patrick married my Great Grandmother Margaret Burke in Oughaval RC Parish in 1864. They had 6 children, 5 survived. Patrick's father was Thomas Grady and this is where my information is scarse. I believe Thomas married Mary Dunne? in Aglish RC parish Co Mayo in 1831 and had AT LEAST one other child, Judith/Julia born in or around 1825. Thomas had a brother James. They are both listed in Griffiths Report as living on inisheeny with their families. The family members fished and farmed to survive. I am already in touch with some of my distant cousins from the James line but it would be great to link up with same from my Thomas line. When my Great Grandfather Patrick died in 1877, Margaret Burke Gradywas pregnant with their 5th son. Later she brought her 5 sons to live in Scotland and settled in the Paisley area. Her sons were Martin 1865 -1922, John 1867-1926, Thomas 1869 - ?, Michael 1874 - ? and Patrick 1877 - 1941. Im Searching for confirmation of Thomas snr Wife How many children they had Where did Julia go to on leaving inisheeny? Her Husband? her children? Her death? Thomas jnr and michael are thought to have deserted from the army and went to Canada before going to settle in USA...ANY information on either would be amazing. Thats my ancestry.....as i Know it....thanks for any help/info that may come my way. Anne Marie Wilson

Hi, i'm looking for an ancestor, Elizabeth or Elizabetha Browne, she married Pierre Grandmaison in Flanders around 1697. Maybe in Bruges. He could be already a member of a calvary regiment. That's all I have so far

Browne

An ancestor of mine was Thomas Waldron married to Catherine Jordan. She died in 1817. In Nick Reddan's Newspaper Extracts she is described as " a sister of Major Jordan who died at Jamaica-niece to Colonel Brown who was killed at Havannal and grand-niece to Field-Marshal Brown who died at Vienna." My researches so far indicate that these Browns (Brownes?) are connected to Camus, Co. Limerick and/or Moyne, Co. Galway. A Major Thomas Browne was killed as part of a French/American force at the Siege of Savannah, Georgia, 1779 in the American War of Independence. Is it possible that "Havannal" is a corruption of Savannah? In the 18th century, a Field-Marshal Browne died in the Austrian military service in Vienna. These Brownes would appear to fit the details in Nick Reddan's records. I'm very interested in finding out more about the connection between Catherine Jordan and the Brownes.

Browne

My grandfather Robert T Browne was born in Lismore, County Waterford in 1880. I believe the family owned a printing shop and produced a local newspaper. They were Protestants (Church of Ireland) and subsequently moved to Belfast. I briefly visited Lismore as a 9 year old in 1953, and my grandfather's brother was still there. My grandfather joined the RIC, and in 1912 was Winston Churchill's bodyguard during Churchill's infamous visit to Belfast when their car was almost overturned by Protestant rioters. (As a result he had a very low opinion of Churchill). He subsequently joined the RUC and developed the fingerprinting section. He retired in 1938 when he visited the US and was made an honorary sheriff of Chicago. He died in Belfast in 1970. My father Harold George (Buster) Browne was born in Belfast in 1907, and played rugby for Ireland (I don't know what year or what position). He joined the Royal Artillery in 1939, was evacuated from France after Dunkirk and spent the rest of the war in Haifa, Palestine until he was transferred to Tripoli, Libya to become Commissioner of Trade and Supplies for the province of Tripolitania during the British Military Administration until Libya became independent in 1951. He remained in Tripoli until 1960 when he returned to Belfast, and retired there in Millile, County Down. Their house burned down in an electrical storm in 1978, so he with my mother and grandmother Crawford joined us in Durban, South Africa. He died of a heart attack aged 71 in 1979 in Durban. I was born in Belfast in 1942, but grew up in Libya until I was 17 and since 1967 have lived in South Africa. I have written three books, Eye on the Gold having just been published this year. I am considering a fourth book tentatively entitled Eye on the Horizon to include the family's Lismore history (including the Black and Tan operations there), plus Churchill's visit to Belfast in 1912.

King Hanley of Tipperary, Ireland fought in Crusades. Castle eventually destroyed but remnants still stand. Villagers adopted O’Ainle (O’Hanley) as they were of the Hanley kingdom. I am a direct descendant of King Hanley (although many generations down), and my father spent time in Tipperary verifying the information and meeting direct descendant relatives of King Hanley. Why is none of this information available on the internet? No mention of King Hanley of Tipperary?

He joined the Merchant Navy in 1849 as a boy. The next record is his marriage to Sarah Jane Aglor in Ontario, Canada. They moved to Grand Island, NY and had 3 children before the 1870 census. They were John Jr, Kathryn Elizabeth, and Mary Jane. Sarah died in 1874 and the girls were raised by other families. John and John Jr boarded with different families and worked as laborers. John Jr died in 1887 and the girls grew up and married. Mary Jane's name was changed to Margaret by one of the families she lived with and she was known as Mar

Catherine O'Donnell was born in Donegal abt 1818 parentage unknown, Catherine married Hugh Boyle born abt 1814, Donegal, Ireland. They married approximately 1836. I imagine they had a large family. Our great-grandfather was one of their sons born abt 1846 in Ireland. James married Anna McHugh, 2 March 1867 Kincatlagh, Donegal, Ireland. They started their family in Donegal and immigrated to Scotland . Where they finished raising their family and died in Uphall, West-Lothington, Scotland. Our grandfather immigrated after his parents died to Andaconda, Deerlodge, Montana. His children, grandchildren live mostly in Washington State. All of us are anxious to know more about his Irish family and roots he left behind. We have pedigree charts in our homes begging for information about our Irish history.

Hello all, So far in my research I have found that my great grandfather, James Patrick Tracey, immigrated to America from Ireland in 1902 at age 25. Records show he was from Killeshin, Queen's Co. His father was Martin Tracey (born abt 1840), and we believe my great great great grandfather was Maurice Tracey. Church baptism and marriage records for three generations found at the RC Chapel of Graigue, Queen's Co, living in Killeshin and Ballickmoyler at the lime. Searching for information on Tracey/Treacy lineage for descendants that may still be living in Ireland.

(Part 1 of 3) The Enright name has a long history in the British Isles, but now DNA and some recorded history says its origin is from the north-west region of the Emerald Island. The Enright story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup D2] can trace their beginnings to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Enright surname origin is from the Cenél Conaill [R1b-L513, Subgroup D] who found the Dál Fiatach.

(Part 2 of 3) A group will also found the Kingdom of Ercing in Wales as trade with Romans will become essential around 300 CE. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Enright story begins in pre-history Ireland but this line and many of his kin will move to Wales, then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.
