Wow! At this point I'm just amazed at the dedication of my father. Two hundred and forty one entries so far! A lot of the information came from Henry Hollingsworth, but just about all of it has been originally found or corroborated by the footwork of my father - whether it was checking records in the Custom House in Dublin, registers in various parishes or deciphering headstones which were sometimes in a disheveled(!) state.

I remember two in particular. The first was when we were going to an isolated cemetery at the top of a hill in the countryside. I can't remember where exactly it was (I was too young) nut do remember that we walked across a railway line, and past a farmhouse where we were chased by a flock of guard geese. The second was moving two great six-foot stones which were lying face down in Ballycanew. More about that later.
