Hi Jane, Only today I saw your post about Gene Hanratty.Gene's father Patrick was my granduncle as he was a brother to Thomas Hanratty, my grandfather.I never knew my grandfather as he died before I was born and my mother is also dead so I have very little personal information about the family.I remember Gene visiting us a long time ago and I would love to find out more about the family.Do you know about the Hanrattys and when they moved from Drumacon to Crossmaglen? or was that only Francis(1847-1894) who moved after he married Kate McArdle.Why did he become a Publican? I have some info based on John McGrath's research and I do know that Gene died in 2007, but I would love to find out more about the family in general. Hope you get this message. Regards Ann.
