My e-mail address is ( ). I have no information on my ggm siblings. The McHale ggparents together with daughters, Sarah and Annie, came to America in 1888 to join their daughter, Bridget McHale Connelly at the Michael J. Connelly Ranch in Montana. My wife and I visited Inishbofin in 1978. We met Richard and Margaret McHale there at that time. They have since passed away.

A cousin has visited Inishbofin recently and reports that there are Schofields and O’Malley’s living there today. We have contact with a few surviving McHales in America today. My mother’s father James Kelleher and her mother Nora Sullivan Kellehr were from Cork.

I have a Reunion program for the Mac and have access to the National Archives in San Bruno, CA and the Sutro Library in San Francisco.
