Conference papers and Certificate ceremony

Clans and Surnames Conference, Nenagh, Tipperary.

Friday 19 May, 2017

I awoke bright and early and very excited. Today is the day I deliver my Conference paper ‘The Quest to find Prendergast ancestry”

The day started with Dr. Michael C. Kean who has written a book from Laois (pronounced Leesh) to Kerry.

AAEAAQAAAAAAAAkVAAAAJDM0MzYwMWJmLTQyNGEtNGEzMi04NWE2LTc0YmFiM2IxMWI2ZgDr. Penny Walters delivered a very interesting and heartfelt paper “Is adoption the Primal Wound”



This was followed by Jane Halloran-Ryan- Tyredagh Clunes – What we can learn from one family’s journey – From Country Clare to Connecticut.



After a short morning break Tony Harpur presented “The glory of the O’Deas.




And then it was my turn. I thoroughly enjoyed delivering my paper “The quest to find Prendergast ancestry”. Quinn supported my presentation by synchronizing the video that Barry had created especially for my presentation.




Professor Deidre-Hunt presented her paper “An exploration of the O’Dwyers’

Ed Madden – Exploration of family history research was also very interesting.

We finalized our Irish research with the Certificate ceremony presented by Kenneth Nicholls.
