Good evening all.  Would anyone know if there are any O'Connells still living in Loughton, Offaly.  My Great Grandfather Michael William O'Connell and my Grandfather also Michael William and all his family used to work in Loughton House as gardeners and domestic servants as was written in the 1901 and 1911 Census and my great Uncle Martin ended up as the Head Gardener around the 1950s.  My great grandmother, Mary O'Connell nee Byrne died in 1922 in Loughton. and her eldest daughter Mary O'Connell  registered her death, who also lived in Loughton, I think. My Great Uncle Martin died in 1964 and his wife Josephine a few years later in the cottage that adjoined to grounds of Loughton House.  I'm hoping that we have living relatives still around that area.  How exciting it would be to discover some long lost cousins.

Thank you for any information.
