You’re originally from Graiguenamanagh, Co. Kilkenny. And because the good people of that parish are wanderers (since half the village is in Carlow, they have to be) there may be someone from your hometown near you right now, whether you’re in Boston or Botswana. So why not use this Hometown page to begin the chat? Knowing the degrees of Irish separation, we’d be sure you’ll uncover a friend of the family somewhere.

We’ll help you keep the connection updated, share stories as they happen and list events coming up, in case you’re thinking of planning that long overdue visit.

Meanwhile log on and introduce yourself. And who knows pretty soon you could be sitting down to reminisce about your native village. (Unless it turns out they are the reason you left in the first place, in which case we’ll help you avoid them.)
