Hi Brigid, I was in Ballyhade about 3 summers ago. Wish I'd known you were there.
John Dunne and my father Michael Dunne were cousins. Patrick was my grandfather, and James Dunne, who I believe was John's father, was his brother.
I met Tommy Dunne and Chrissy and Jim while staying in Carlow. Am I right that they are cousins of yours? I also visited the Levitstown cemetery and saw the gravestone erected by your grandfather in memory of his Ballyhade ancestors.
