Just to update Murray Ginnane's post and to fill in a few more details..

Yes - Tony & Janet Ginnane lived in Rahona, the original family homestead. Janet sadly passed away a number of years ago - Tony is still living and farming in Rahona.

Mary Ginnane retired in 2006 from the post office in Carrigaholt and continues to live in the village.

Their brother Thomas, emigrated in 60's to New York, married with children and lives there with his family in Bayside. He returns occasionally on holidays.

Their sister Theresa, emigrated too to New Jersey, married with children and she lives there with her family. She returns frequently to Rahona on holidays.

Happily the next generation of Irish-American Ginnanes enjoy visits too!

Their other brother Eamonn lives in Athlone, Co. Westmeath, and is now retired from the post office. He married, had two children - both of whom in the last number of years, decided to live in Ennis, County Clare - an hour from Carrigaholt.

They are Sinead Ginnane and Sile Ginnane (me).
