This wonderful photo, probably dating from the period 1915-1920, shows the Butler sisters outside their home, Garlic Hill, Crusheen. The ruins of the house can still be seen from the Mid Clare Way walking route (near the start of Stage 3, Ballinruan to Ruan). The photo was sent to us by Vickie Mulholland of Sydney Australia, whose grandmother, Kathleen Butler, is seated second from left. Born in 1902, Kathleen died in Australia in 1942.
Vickie, who is researching her grandmother's family, wonders if any research has been done on Kilawinna graveyard where the Butlers are buried. She's also seeking information on the Hehir family of Carrowkeel Beg. If you can help in Vickie's search, please contact us.
If you have access to a scanner or digital camera, why not send us photos of family
members or others who have lived in the Aughties? We'd like to make
this page a gallery of Aughty people which can be updated regularly
and build into an archive of portraits. Include if possible names,
dates and locations in your email. Save photos as JPG files and
attach them in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
