Planning a visit with family to Fiddown and Piltown, County Kilkenny in Ireland

My name is Peter Hartog. I did find substantive information about my ancestors (O Leary) from Piltown, Fiddown and Turkstown in County Kilkenny. I did place information about the O leary's on the message board. With relatives I would like to visit this area, see the churches, graveyards, the places where the ancestors lived and worked.


Could I get assistance/ advice  from a volunteer of Ireland XO about preparing such a visit. Any information would be welcome. We are considering such as visit in june/ july/ august 2020.


Kind regards,


Peter Hartog

    Dear Jane, happy new year, The plans for a visit have been delayed by the present limitations. Maybe it would be possible this summer or fall? So far I did not hear from a a local volunteer. That would be very nice if this still would happen.

    Stay healthy!

    kind regards,


    Peter Hartog
