Hi Jean , thanks for that , however Pam Hodge is my cousin(second)who lives in Scotland , her maiden name was Dwyer , her father Charles Dwyer and my father Charles Dwyer were first cousins , her grandfather was also Charles Dwyer , mine Andrew Dwyer who were brothers.She also has brother and nephew Charles Dwyer, I had a brother Charles and have a great nephew Charles Dwyer. That makes seven of them !!! Pam's 2005 posting was due to percentages. I researched all the Dwyer's who came to NSW from 1788 to 1890, and where they came from. About 75% had come from Tipperary.So pam started to seriously look at Tipperary.
