I happened to see your message and was startled to see the name Bridget Kenny from County Roscommon. My great great grandmother was Bridget Kenny from Strokestown in Co. Roscommon. Her husband was Patrick Kenny, and I believe her maiden name was Pennick. I'm told the Kenny surname is "common in Roscommon." I wonder if there might be a family connection.
I'm a writer, living in New Jersey, USA and would like very much to hear from you.
