CLARE ROOTS SOCIETY NEEDS YOU...







 

Our wonderful secretary has retired, so the position of secretary to the most innovative and productive genealogy society is vacant.

If you would like to be part of this well respected group, one that is admired far and wide, and have first hand access to those with more answers about Irish family history and where to find those elusive records, than anyone else, then this is the position for you.

 CRS committee and members are living family history and absorbing local knowledge every day. What a great opportunity to be first on the spot. You will also make numerous contacts with experts and enthusiasts the world over, and get to meet many of those you admire.

Please contact chairperson@clareroots.org for further details. We welcome applications from all interested. The committee are all hands on and are all willing to help each other.

CRS meet just once a month with a break over the summer months.

We are looking forward to hearing from you.

“ THE HISTORY OF THE BRADY-BROWNES OF NEWGROVE, TULLA”



By 

David Brady-Browne



David is the last member of the Brady-Browne family living in Ireland. 

He spent three years tracing the family history and genealogy of one of East Clare’s best known families, from the 1600’s right up to the present day. 

His family played a prominent role in the life of the Tulla region and served with distinction in the sporting field, the military and public service. 

David will talk of his personal journey researching his family and will give an exceptional record of the family going back eleven generations.


His talk includes a mention of Montfort Browne of Newgrove, a key personality in the American War of Independence, a General in the American Army and Governor of the Bahamas.
