You sound like a wealth of information on Offaly, which is interesting to me because i am trying to make sense of my family geneology search from a great distance.
I love the research part of completing my family search and the stories and histories I discover along the way. One of the things I'm having trouble with still is getting my head around barronies, civil parishes, townlands, etc. Without having been to Ireland (yet) or heard a native even pronounce some of these locations, it's a bit like learnning a new language as I go.
I do not intend to burden you with specific assistance for my family reasearch, but any history or interesting details you are inspired to share about Offaly or my research topics, no matter how menial, I'm sure I would find most interesting from your local perspective.
