Our Society is planning (subject to funding) as part of our Diaspora engagement a Gathering this summer in Woodford for the descendants of the people from the townlands of Loughatorick North and South and Toorleitra, Woodford parish.

As part of this engagement we are happy to present some of the ruins from these townlands which were documented and photographed for a research project on migration and depopulation from the 1840s to 1911 by Monica Hynes as part of her Masters in History of Family course. A big thank you goes to those who helped with the fieldwork, namely Brian Keary, Willie Reilly, Michael Fahy, Joe Canning and Shane O’Neill and the Woodford community see our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/eastgalway.familyhistory.9 or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhrWjdpe1EQ to view these amazing ruins.
