I am a genealogist and local historian who has been researching my own family history for more than 30 years. I am especially interested in the diaspora connections between Ireland and the US. My genealogy work has covered house histories, land research and genealogy research in Ireland, Australia, England, Scotland and Ireland. I am also a volunteer with Ireland Reaching Out and I am part of the local committee in Tulla, County Clare, Ireland. I am actively involved with several local historical societies and I am the current Chairperson of Clare Roots Society in County Clare, Ireland.
