Info sought on my granduncle, Tom McGiff, Brickeens, Longford. At 1.00am on a Monday morning , Tom and his neighbour Ned Duggan hijacked a bullock off the family farm. The 2 men walked the poor animal to Edgeworthstown fair about 10 miles away.Having sold the animal they boarded the train to Dublin and from there they sailed to Liverpool and then on to Buenos Aires via the Canaries Islands, arriving in Argentina circa 20th June 1872 - all paid for by the money recd. for the bullock. Tom and Ned became sheep farmers in an area called Benito Juarez, some 200 miles south of Buenos Aires. Tom did not marry,- his last message to my father was that "I am selling my sheep farm and returning to Erin's Isle"- he never made it, dying of bowel cancer shortly afterwards.I have no idea of what became of Ned Duggan although I believe that he is a relative of the well known large and wealthy Duggan family west of Buenos Aires. I think that this is a lovely colourful storey which I thought McGiff people might like to hear. Does anybody have similar stories to tell and of course if anybody has any info on Tom or Ned please let me know. Regards, Luke Baxter, Longford, Ireland.
