My heart belongs in ireland

John Grady (inisheeny)
Family album

This photo is of my grandfather John Grady… born 1867… on Inisheeny island, Westport.      His father Patrick died in 1877, leaving behind wife, Margaret Burke and 4 sons. Margaret was pregnant with their 5th son Patrick at this time… eventually she moved and settled in Scotland with her 5 sons….John married Mary Ward and had 13 children, one of whom was my father Robert. My family have always known of our Irish heritage and our ancestors in Inisheeny/Westport. John never forgot his homeland but sadly he was never able to return. He died in Johnstone, Scotland in 1926, but his legacy lives on.
