My heart belongs in ireland
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.
