Comments: Great Site! I'm researching Claffy ancestors in the area, and as Lawrence seems to be peculiar to my branch of the family as a given name I felt magnetically drawn over to Lawrencetown... If "Lawrence Claffy" rings any bells for anyone (the original left Ireland in 1835) please give me a shout.  In any case the town looks charming.

Comments: Interesting site! My great-great grandparents, John STANTON or STAUNTON (son of William) and Brigid DONOHUE (any spelling - daughter of John) left Co Galway and came to Melbourne, Victoria Australia with children Brigid (later COSGROVE, then HART, then McMURRAY), William, Mary (later WARDLE) and Julia (my ggmother - later BURKE) on the ship "Intrinsic" in 1841.  They might have come from Laurencetown or the Ballinasloe
area.

Comments: Great Website! My mother is from Kiltormer (Mary Tierney, daughter of Margaret & William). It's been many years since I have visited Ireland and Lawrencetown so it's pretty incredible to see how far technology has reached. The last time I was over (1983) few people in the Kiltormer/Lawrencetown area had telephones let alone computers. My cousin (William Tierney son of Liam) & I would bike to Lawrencetown from Ballydonough. I always liked Lawrencetown - quaint, pretty and very clean. Bumping into your website brought back a lot of great memories. I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing the Places of Interests and Local History. It would be great to see Kiltormer do something like this as well. Next year, My mother and my family hope to visit Ireland. Seeing your website, makes me want to return even more.      Best Wishes  Joe
