Jane Sryquin, Texas & Julie Stuckel, Rockford, Illinois
Jane Sryquin from Texas had a life time ambition for her Mam to explore four Branches off her Family in Ireland. Read how they walked in the exact spot in their Native Carrick on Suir Chapel Lane and how the name changes of Roads and Laneways create no difficulty for My Ireland Team to unravel.
Jane, her Mam Julie, sister Amy and son Sam travelled to Ireland in May 2014 a life time ambition. Once the research was carried out on all branches of the Family a Tour was organised based on all of the Facts of the Croghan Lovett hartigan and Flanagan braches of the Family. The Tour travelled too the Roscommon area onto Mayo and a wonderfull stop with the Hartigan branch in Manistir Co Limerick where they met some long lost relations.
The Best part was finding the actual Lane way of the Lovett Family from Ballybricken Waterford in Carrick on Suir Chapel lane. Sean travelled to the area prior to the Trip and in discussions with Locals discoevered that the new Name for the Laneway was Lana Nua in Gaelige and in fact the Roadway was once called Chapel Street at the same time as our Baptismal Record date 1834. Without this extraordinary research and find we would never have got the chance to walk exactly where our Relations once lived.
My Ireland put on a Marvelous Tour in Co Meath as part of the Programme of seven days. Seán believes in getting to the Soul of Ireland and to achieve this a Trip around Co Meath including the 5000 year Old World Unesco Heritage site, Newgrange, Hill of Tara, St Columbas house which Sean had opened just for our Visit where the Book of Kells had been written and Finally the Battle of the Boyne site was organised.
