We don't know the marvellous work that is going on right under our noses.
I watched Nationwide last evening and they did a report on Bray Lakers. I was moved to tears. If you get a chance watch it on the RTE player.
Here is the website for the lakers,

Sinead,

I love looking at a site rootschat.org and the other day one of the helpful researchers referred a query to this site swilson. I don't know who he is but there are gems on his site and I hope he doesn't mind me sharing...here is an ad from the site of the Royal Marine Hotel

What a lovely ad for the Royal Marine. It was I believe the first building in Dunlaoghaire/Kingstown to have electricity.

On and off. He plays golf in Bray, he was captain there a couple of years back. I met his brother Pat a couple of weeks ago and I was asking about him. He said that he was recovering from an illness but was doing fine. That's about as much as I know, if I hear anymore I'll let you know. I posted the photo on to me daughter, who knows Pat, so maybe I'll hear something back
