Kelly from Canada | Print |  E-mail

On Wednesday 19th August, Kelly Stadelbauer paid a visit to the parish office.

It was in December 2013 that Kelly sent an enquiry through the website enquiring about her great-grandmother, Lucy Conlon from Coose.

That e-mail led to the Conlon connection with the Phoenix family, resulting in the Historical Society erecting a plaque at the site of the old Ballylough School!

Lucy Conlon married William Phoenix in 1899 and they went on to have 7 children: Mary Ann, Margaret, William, Sarah, Rose, George and James.

Sarah, born in 1908, emigtated to Canada in 1924 at the age of 16 and is Kelly's grandmother.
