Tracing your Roots/Heritage
Quote from guests on Tripadvisor:
|What a treasure Clareville House is. Visited Tuamgraney to explore the area where my great-grandmother was born and emigrated to New Zealand from. Was thrilled to find my Great Great Grandparents in the beautiful old church yard of St. Cronan’s. When I mentioned this to Derek & Teresa they immediately made a phone call and before I know it I was meeting my grandfathers first cousins. Wow!!!"
