I'm wondering if there are any Brennans still living in Castlebar/Aglish. My 3x Great Grandfather was William Brennan, and was born about 1835 in Castlebar, the son of Robert (or William Robert) Brennan and Ellen Heffernan. He emigrated to Sydney, Australia in 1855 on the ship the 'Golden Era'. I know that his grandparents' names were William Robert Ross Brennan & Dorothy Clemmens. If anyone is related to him, I'd love to hear from you!
