I am posting this message as a last resort to finding links to my family. I have researched on numerous sites and last year even visited Ardfert to look at records and speak to any locals who might have been able to help.
I want to find out about my family who were called the Dowd's and lived on a farm in Ardfert. I know that they lived very close to Banna Strand. My great, great grandparents and owners of the farm were Mary Dowd (nee Sullivan) and William Dowd. As far as I know, they lived on the farm approximately from the early 1900's. Again, as far as I'm aware, they had ten children: Dolly, Larry, Bridget, John, Hannah, Molly, Kathleen, Timmy, Michael and Patrick.
I would really appreciate any information that anyone might have on anything relating to the Dowd's and their farm near Banna Strand. I have attached a photo of the people that I think to be William and Mary Dowd. Thank you for your time!
