A collection of some really nice photos from the past "come to life". I've had this idea for quite some time now, but just couldn't find the ones I really wanted. Most of the
photos I took from Life magazine, Library of Congress, Shorpy and National
The text of the song entitled 'Kilkelly Ireland', penned by American song writer Peter Jones, whose great, great grandfather was John Hunt, from the general Kilkelly area. Back in the late 1970s or early 1980s, Peter found a box of old letters in the attic of
his parents home in America. These were a series of letters written between
1860 - 1890, to John Hunt by his parents from their home in Kilkelly in
Ireland. The letters chronicled family news of births, deaths, marriages and
were written on behalf of the parents by local schoolmaster Pat McNamara. It shows the difficulties many families and our ancestors experienced when they immigrated to the U.S. I would suggest you watch it on full screen, if you don't want to miss out some details. Enjoy it.
