  • My father's grandmother Elizabeth Breen (1876-1956), her twin, Kate Breen and her younger siblings were baptized at St Michael the Archangel's RC Church in Ballylongford. I was fortunate to attend Mass twice in October 2017 while visiting my cousins, Richard and Margaret Breen, at the Breen Family Farm in Leanamore, Ballylongford, County Kerry.

  • Oh wow that's great to get the human story of the building. Have you done up Ancestor Chronicles for them? We can link them to the church and parish and hopefully connect with more descendants.
