  1. Jerry, you have done an amazing amount of work on this project. I don’t know if this would be of interest to you but will pass it along anyway. Fred and I served as Joint North American Co-Ordinators for the International Rose of Tralee Festival in Ireland for some 12 years. This Festival was to promote tourism to Ireland and to have our young people represent the families who had emigrated over the years. The other person that I was thinking about was Michael O’Grady, son of John O’Grady and Mary Purcell. He would have been a brother to Catherine Doherty (Timothy O’Grady), Mary O’Grady (William Doherty) and Ellen O’Grady ( John Doherty). I know this is branching out but he was known for his discovery of base metals in B.C. and I know that several of the Doherty nieces went out west to work for him in the hotel that he built. I’m not trying to change it to an O’Grady book but because of the nieces going out to work for him and them being already known as artists/painters might be a fit for what you are doing.

    I will pass your letter on to several of the family but you know that you can count me in as one book for sure.


  2. Thanks Shirley. I have you down for one book. Margaret is aware of Michael O’Grady and we have him in the book. I’ll add the information about you and Fred into Fred’s section. Cheers, Jeri

  3. Hello,

    I am trying to get in touch with Margaret Forde. I would like to find out if she still paints and if she has any paintings for sale at the moment.

    Thank you.
