Hello! My grandmother, Dell Tolan, was born in Castlebar in 1909. I'm told that her ancestors (Corcorans & Tolans) are buried at the church there and that they lived in a cottage in Burren where the old Burren school was...below it was a creek and a cove called Nan's Hole where the family used to play.
I'm going to be making the trek across the pond this summer & hope to visit & learn of Grandma's life in Castlebar....so, any assistance, comments, thoughts, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much (in advance).
