Lovely to hear from you Jean, my father was William. If I can be of any help with your research let me know. I will email you privately.
Donal, Paddy and William Lysaght were my father’s cousins. I just found this website, as I’m researching my Irish roots from Colorado!
Pauline, check out the 1901 and 1911 Census of Ireland, you will find some Grimes fishermen there.
My great grandfather Patrick Grimes fished on the shannon. He was a big man. Died about 1940 His son Patrick was my grandad. I am trying to find out more info.
