Irish Palatines


I've done some research and know that my family traces back to the Irish Palatine group that settled in and around Rathkeale. I believe there may even be a restored ancestral home there.

Anyway, just interested in the part of the family that stayed in Ireland and what they might know about the Switzers' journey.
