MATTHEW MAHADY <mahadym@powerup.com.au>

Peter,
My home address is 508 Main Road,Wellington Point 4160. QLD and my Moran connection is Rathowen,Westmeath, Ireland to USA around about 1830 -40s but my own Mahady research relates to all Irish locations from about the 1750s to 1900s and involved two specific research visits to Ireland in 1990 & 1995 with the latter being as a 60 year old "Backpacker" traversing the Counties of Longford,Westmeath with a side trip to both Donegal to visit old friends from my own Scottish schoolday holidays and to Limerick when I found a family relative the first day I arrived in Ireland due to him being advised from America that I was on my way to Dublin and he phoned Aer Lingus to find out when I would arrive and where I could be contacted - it is really a small World and moreso now that we have Cyberspace. Thanks for responding.

MATT M.
