Jennifer Mee reconnects from Florida to Glenamaddy in County Galway

October 2012

Filming for a programme called 'Homeward Bound' as part of 'The Gathering 2013', took place in October 2012 in a number of County Galway locations. Ireland XO team member, Rory O'Shaughnessy was interviewed in Connemara by actress Fionnula Flanagan about Ireland Reaching Out, emigration in general, and re-connections Ireland Reaching Out have made - in particular the Mee family from Glenamaddy, Co Galway.

Jennifer Mee, from Florida has Irish connections still living in Glenamaddy and the programme unveils a surprise connection and meeting for her. Jennifer had placed a message on the Ireland XO website looking for help reconnecting. Ireland XO Genealogist Adviser, Cynthia, took the query and found a contact in Glenamaddy for Jennifer. Again Ireland XO are bridging the gap for people researching their family tree and history through a large volunteer network on the ground in Ireland and documenting the oral history and knowledge still in being today.
