Welcome to the Irish Homelands feature for County Laois (formerly known as "Queen's County" up to 1922).
I decided to lay out as many Irish names as I could come up with in this article. I included the answers to many of the questions I received – maybe you can find some of your familiar names below? I have divided them into boys and girls names. Have a look through and see…
Do you have any school teachers in your family tree? Perhaps they have fond memories of the hallowed halls in which they taught, the ordered classrooms, fully stocked with the supplies of a good education. In this letter, we will visit a humbler school setting, that was the only option for many Irish schoolteachers during lean times.
This Irish Homelands Feature - a Trip to County Limerick - was our very first Homelands feature in 2015. How far we have come! We look forward to returning to Limerick for a future feature.
Welcome to this Irish Homelands feature as we head to County Kilkenny!
