(Family letters and gravestones.) unfortunately there is no indication of wether they were urban or rural. Because the "Perish of Fermoy" is mentioned in Boston Pilot Advertisements I have come here.   It is my intention to come to Ireland in the Spring of 2014 for the O'Brien Clan Gathering. I plan to hike the E8 from Cork East through Fermoy on the way to Clontarf.I would very much like to meet any living cousins in the Fermoy area on my way east. Thank-you.Mark O'
