My name is Eugenie Foss Sardo. My gr-grandmother was Margaret a Theresa Flaherty, born 1852, in Bunmahon, Co. Waterford. Her parents were Patrick Flaherty & Honor Veale. They were a family of miners. Through DNA, I have Flahertys related to me from Kerry & Galway, mainly, Lixnaw, Kerry & Moycullen, Galway, it seems. As a miner, possibly Patrick might've come from Kerry, for mining jobs. He was born around 1810.
