My mothers maiden name was Greaney, she was born in Spiddal (Forbough) county Galway in 1912. she married mark Skeffington in the Uk, he passed away four years ago. My mother was one of nine children, 2 still live here in the UK, Sarah who is now in her 80's, Dorothy who is 70 and Walter who still lives on the same spot in Galway now. He has demolished the old house and as many now have, he has built a modern bungalow. Spiddal is on the coast, Galway Bay.

Ireland is now a monied country, nothing at all like the stories that the old folk relate, unfortunately.

My Mothers name was Mary Emily Greaney, Her mothers name was Christina kurtin. There is a cemetary in Barna (near my uncles house in galway) with a family tombstone of Greaneys. I could send a picture of this if you would like me too.

My Mum had siblings: Louise, Eileen, dorothy, Anne, Sarah, walter, James and John.
