: Hi Tim,
: Stella McGarry [Murray] born 1929 is the youngest of the McGarry family: Beth, Kathleen ,Vincent and Stella. She is the only surviving member. She and Dermot live near the top of Casserley's hill in Raheela, 2 or 3 miles from Fenchpark. My ancestral home was near the top of this hill on the other side of the road.My father,John, emigrated to England with his father,Thomas, in the late 1880s leaving behind my great-uncle Michael and his wife Maggie [nee Forde] and her brother Andrew who were later joined by my uncle Tom

: Between 1933 and 1939 I spent virtually all the school holidays at my uncle Tom's farm in Raheela md became great friends with Beth, Kathleen and Vincent McGarry nd many other teenagers in the district.Stella was only a child at the time.
: After the war,I became a teacher and taught in England,Malaya and Singapore, Lomdon ,Australia and finally New Zealand from 1964, where I now live; I retired in 1979.

I discovered that the information in this message is incorrect, Stella McGarry is cousin to Beth, Kathleen and Vince, not their sister.She lived in the house opposite.
She objects to having her privacy invaded by various people and would like to be left in peace in future.Please ignore the whole of the original message.
