Sentimental Sunday - New York Cousins

During the month of March, I will be shining the light on my Irish roots.

Most of Mary Theresa Sheehan Killeen Walsh’s sisters remained in New York following their emigration from Limerick, Ireland. It seems that Mary Theresa made sure her children got to visit their cousins.

  1. Great photos. I have one - yes one - first cousin whom I'm not sure my kids have even met. Even when her older sister was alive when we were kids, we didn't see much of each other and don't have many photos together. Yes, the guy with a camera around his neck who saved everything didn't take many pictures.
