Hi Christine, very glad to hear from you. Kathleen Cotter, nee O'Connell is certainly related to the Hennessys. I also know that Nora bulman existed. I often visit the Bulman's house in Cork City to collect parcels, which my mother would bring to N.Y. when she visited Kathleen. I have done no research on the bulman side, but I will try to gather some information for you. It would appear that the O'Connell's are related to the Bulman's. I wonder where the name Irene is coming from? There was also a Mary Hennessy married to Jim O'Rielly who lived in N.Y. My Email is email@example.com
. I am afraid all of the people with knowledge of the familys are no longer with us.
