I am reaching out to locate decendants of Thaddeus Dooley and Brigid Rohan, who raised their family in Mountshannon or Whitegate, but some decendants, I understand, currently reside in or around Dublin.  My mother, Alice Theresa (Sherlock) O'Mara is the daughter of Katherine Dooley.  James Dooley (son fo Thaddy and Brigid) was my mother's grandfather.  I know that there is at least one cousin in the area, James Scott-Lennon, owner of the Abbey Tavern.

We will be visiting Ireland very soon, coming from the U.S., many of us for the first time.  To celebrate my Mom's 85th birthday, we've arranged a family tour of Ireland and will be attending dinner and a traditional Irish show at the Abbey Tavern the evening of July 3rd. My Mom's cousin, Mary Agnes (O'Brien) Mannix, who just turned 90, will also be joining us on the tour, along with some of her children.  There will be fifteen of us in all.  Both Alice O'Mara and Mary Mannix are second-cousins to Minnie Scott, sharing the same great grandparents (Thaddy and Brigid Dooley).  Minnie's grandfather. Patrick Dooley, was a brother to Alice & Mary's grandfather, James Dooley.  The rest of us are third-cousins to James Scott-Lennon.

We were hoping to be able to connect with some of our relatives during our visit.  It would mean so much to my Mom and to Mary to connect with some of their Irish family on our trip.  Any assistance in contacting family would be very greatly appreciated. 

Thank you!

Alicia (O'Mara) DuBois
