We have traced the Foley family back to Joe's probable great-great-grandfather Michael Foley from Breanamore, Castlerea, Co. Roscommon, who was born around the 1800s. He had a daughter, Anne (possibly an only child), who married Thomas Gordon around 1857. They had 16 children and lived in Kilgarriff, Fairymount, Co. Roscommon. For further information, please click on Descendants List or Narrative Report.  


Unfortunately, we have no photograph of any member of this Foley family, but if you have any photo(s) of Anne or her descendants that you would like to share, I would be delighted to hear from you. Please email any pictures to Many thanks in advance.
