I posted on here many years before and was able to contact a second cousin I think Thomas Gibbons? However, now I cannot find your email address (will keep looking) but I am interested to see the photos you said you had of my Dad and his mum my grandma Mrs Langan. I don't know if you can scan them onto the computer? I wondered if there might be any photos of my Dad when he was at school? I don't know his birthday either so wondered if you might know it?
Perhaps someone else might remember my Dad Michael Gibbons Ballivary our family lived in the station house, I was born in it in 1968. Thank you for any information

I am planning to visit Ireland later this month (August 2015) and have been doing some research to find what I can about my grandmother's time in Ireland. I have found her in the 1901 Census. She lived at House 33 in Cuillaun. Her name was Julia Cox and she had 3 siblings with that surname, 2 of which were still in that house. Her Mother's name in 1901 was Mary McNicholas, my great grandmother. There were 2 children with the McNicholas surname living there as well. Apparently, my great grandfther, whose surname was Cox, was in the Swineford Workhouse during the 1901 Census.
My questions are twofold: 1. Are there any remaining members of the McNicholas family in that area? 2. Is house #33 in Cuillaun still standing? I plan to stop in Cuillaun whether or not.
Thank you.
