Background: I was born in Ballingarry Roscrea County Tipperary. My father's name was Daniel Killackey and his father's name Timothy Killackey. I have several cousins in the USA who were mostly born in New York and Virginia; their father/grand father was Tom Killackey, brother of Daniel.
I am rushing now but will post more detail later.
We have a national day of mourning here in Ireland tomorrow for the victims of the terrible attrocities in the USA this week.
