Hi My message is for Ben Whelehan who posted the original message.
Ben do you have any brothers or sisters for James Joseph or any other information on your grandfathers brothers and sisters.
as i live in westmeath and have family associations to whelehans in tyrellspass my uncle has been good friends with Chrisy Whelehan since the 1950s and is still in contact with him.
i also have a book on the history of tyrellspass which has a photo of a Maggie Whelehan in a school group in 1916 and has various pictures of The Whelehan Family.
