Yes, we are related. My Uncle Joe lives in Florida. He is my mother's brother. My husband and I just returned from a trip to Ireland and we visited with Nellie McGrane on Mullatee in Carlingford. She loves to play the accordion and played about 6 tunes for us. Her great nephews were there as well, James and Derrick. We then went to Dundalk and paid a visit to Mary Rose Morgan, daughter of Mary Ann Myers and John Morgan. She was just as kind and gracious as Nellie and we had a nice visit. Mary Rose lives in the house that once belonged to Joe Donnelly, I belived he was a famous footballer in County Louth around 1910. Mary Rose phoned Colm McCartney, another cousin. I am not positive but he may be the grandson of Margaret Myers. He was very funny. My mother's brothers, Tom and John were killed in WWII. Tom died during the invasion of Sicily. He was a ranger. John was wounded and lated died during the invasion of Saipan. Unfortunately, I never met them as I was born in 1953. Joe is the last remaining child of Theresa (Tessie) Flood. Good to know you! Molly
