  • Hi Dominic McGreal,
    Yes, we are related through the McGreal line. My great grandfather (Jimmy’s father) was John Meehan and he served in the RIC. Jimmy’s mother was Mary Joyce.

  • Hello Louis Meehan,

    I am glad to hear from you. That’s right, we are distant cousins, of course your grandmother Ellen McGreal was married to your grandfather James Meehan. I believe your grandfather James Meehan was a former policeman and he work the barracks in Leenane, Galway. Your grandmother Ellen was a youngest family of McGreal, including my great-grandfather Michael McGreal. I would like to make contact with you about the family history, if you wish. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.

  • Lisa and Dominic – I’m so sorry, I just now saw your messages. Of course you may copy the photo as long as the information I provided is attached. The negative for the image was part of a large collection of images made by Arthur FitzGerald Cochrane that was given to me years ago.

  • Dominick,
    My name is Lisa (McGreal) Harrison and through research, I know that we are related! I’ve been diving into our family history and would love to share the findings of our legacy. My great-great grandfather is Michael (son and grandson both James J. McGreal). I live outside Chicago.

    John Rochon, if this photo does indeed belong to you, may I, too, share? We are having a family reunion next month and this will be such a great addition. Thank you!
