Mee | Heneghan Family Gathering June 2011
In June 2011 Edward Mee from New Zealand and his brother David travelled to Erris to trace their roots and see where there great grandfather had left in 1874.
Gaol Siar organised the welcome home party for our returning cousins. Gaol Siar compiled the family tree chart consisting of 1200 people covering eight generations.
On the night over 120 relatives attended the reunion, where our guests enlightened us to the life story of their great grandfather. Of course there was the traditional Irish welcome of music, dance and craic.
Gaol Siar also accompanied the guests over the coming days, where they had a chance to review the school rolls, see the graves and walk in the footsteps of their ancestors.
