    Do you have any photos available of Queen’s County (Laois) at the turn of the 18th century? Would love to see some from the area my immigrant came from about 1701. One of his brothers also lived in Kilkenny for a time.

    Does anyone have pictures of the Darcey’s of Galway. They were one of the original tribes of Galway. Any pictures would be wonderful, like of the homes, the business, Galway in that time frame, and the Darcey’s themselves?????

    Thank you so much in advance.
