Looking for anything on Loorha farm in Lisduff in Dunmore Parish of County Galway. My wife's grandmother Mary Rush was from there, coming to the US in 1912. Her mother was Mary Joyce.

Thanks for any help.

I don't know if this is any help. These pictures were taken in a cemetery just North of town (Dunmore) this Fall. The indication is that Mary Rushe was from Loorha and buried with her husband and daughter.
