Our Ryan family can be traced back to Joe’s great-great-grandfather Loughlin Ryan, born in 1824, who was headmaster of Garryhill National School in Co. Carlow. He was the husband of Bridget Nolan, with whom he had at least one child that we know of, Malachy. Malachy and his wife, Mary (née Murphy), lived in Garryhill where they raised six children.

If you have any photo(s) you would like to share (or a better quality version of one I have), I would be delighted to hear from you. Please email any pictures to HelensFamilyTrees@gmail.com. Many thanks in advance.
