It is believed our McDonald family came from the Knocklonogad area of Garryhill, Co. Carlow where Joe’s great-great-grandmother Mary McDonald was likely born around 1820. Her parents may have been Thomas McDonald and Bridget Power. Mary married John Murphy and they raised nine children in Knocklonogad.

Unfortunately, we have no photographs of any member of the McDonald family, but if you have any photo(s) you would like to share, I would be delighted to hear from you. Please email any pictures to Many thanks in advance.
