Rita’s Relations

| April 12, 2020 | 0 Comments

This post was in my drafts section and was written years ago. I posted it thinking that WordPress would preserve the original date. It did not. So, it is posted out of sequence.

Rita’s father’s people are from County Kerry. We were told that she had relatives in a place called Kilgobnet. No one we spoke to had ever heard of the place. Fortunately, Google had, so we were able to place it generally, near Kilorglan, the place where Puck Fair takes place. Rita’s father’s boat was named Puck Fair in honor of his ancestors.

Unfortunately, most of the people in Kilorglan had never heard of Kilgobnet either. We ended up stopping at a private home and got directions that brought us close. We ended up asking about three more people before we found the Kilgobnet Post Office. Here’s Rita there.
