I am the granddaughter of Elizabeth Coffey ( née Nugent). Lizzie emigrated to NYC in the USA.   My grandmother had 5 sister Kate, Hannah, Madge, Mary, Nellie and 4 brothers.  Kate married a Duggan and they had 6 children- Michael, Joseph, Paddy, Peg, Bridget Mary and John.    Michael married Maisie and had 6 children - Diedre, Brian, Cathay, Ann, Adrian and Michael.  
In 1976 I stayed with Michael and Maisie DugHan in their boarding house while visiting Bray.  While there , Adrian one  of their children brought me and my friends to an Irish dance- quite a memory  

This October, I'm traveling with my brother and immediate family to Ireland and we plan on stopping in Bray. Would love to meet meet some of our long lost relatives- anyone out there with any information that will help in this search would be appreciated.

  • Why not contact the Bray Historical Society?

    Perhaps the locals can put you in touch with your family. Good luck.

  • Roger-- I can't believe it but this is a great lead. Any suggestions how to obtain an email address for one of his children or an address in Bray to write to-- appreciate your help on this!

  • Marybeth:

    You can either call or e-mail the funeral home!photo  They won't give you any family info directly but perhaps they will provide your e-mail address to a family member who may contact you.
