    HI IM TRYING TO GET HOLD OF A PHOTO OF THE HOUSE THAT WAS AT THE 8TH LOCK YEARS AGO

  3. Hello,

    I am a great great granddaughter of Myles Crofton, who was murdered in 1891 at Killaloe. I am doing some family tree searching and I was hoping you may have a copy of the original article on this? Or perhaps a photo of any Crofton’s many of whom worked on the canals around that time.

    Please advise,
    Regards,
    Karen
