Researching your Ancestry and 2016

Researchers visiting Ireland in 2016 are coming at a very special time.

Ireland is celebrating the centenary of the Easter Rising of 1916. This is a huge date for the people of Ireland and will be marked throughout the country.

Over the next couple of weeks, I will be adding  information and advice daily. Where to research, places of interest to visit, accommodation and where to socialise also. I will cover most counties. You can also email directly.

I can also recommend that from St. Patrick's Day - March 17th, a new movie is being released in Ireland & the USA. The film is centred on The Rising of 1916. An excellent cast and a must for all those with Irish connections.

Any researchers or visitors visiting Co. Cork, I strongly recommend a visit to Cork City Gaol. The museum is a 20-minute walk from the main thoroughfare in Cork City. The gaol has a long history which you can read at the link given. Out of personal interest, my children's great-grandfather was imprisoned there 1922-23. He was an anti-treaty supporter.
To mark the 1916-2016 centenary, through the good people at the museum, I am offering a free pass for a family of 2 adults and up to children. If you email me I will include you in the draw for this free pass. If anyone would like a discount voucher for two, email and I'll gladly pass on.
Please check this blog often for almost daily updates.

Travel between all towns and cities are possible and reliable. If you'd like to rent your own transport, I recommend Car Hire Click on link.

Visiting Ireland? Genealogy

Many thousands of Genealogists from all over the world are now visiting Ireland. 

I am often asked for information on transport, accommodation, parishes, counties and records etc.

For those of you who are planning to visit Ireland, it's more than helpful to have someone resident in Ireland to assist you.

If you would like to contact me EMAIL we can discuss your plans.

Though I am based in Co. Cork, I can give information covering the 32 counties.

Whether you are a researcher in the US, UK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand or South Africa, I look forward to hearing from you.
