CLARE ROOTS SOCIETY PRESENTS...
First of all the launch of a book on St Michael's Villas by Cora Mc Nulty nee Hahessy, native of St Michael's Villas, will take place on Thursday 18th of June in the Old Ground following a 7.30 mass in the Cathedral. On the night, a photo exhibition will be displayed, which reflects on the life and times of the St Michael’s Villas community.
A CRS member in Australia, Aileen Trinder, has just finished a huge transcription project which is now available. See the attached flyer for further information. The lists don't record the native place of the assisted immigrants but, when checking the names against the assisted immigrants Agent's lists on the State Records New South Wales website, Aileen often noted the native place in the Remarks field of the individual records and there are many people with Co Clare as a native place and all other places both in Ireland and the UK.
