I am a second year PhD research student at Mary Immaculate College in Limerick, Ireland. My area of study is with diaspora and network connections and the migratory patterns from clustered settlements in Ireland to similar settlements in the U.S. I have published several articles in the Other Clare about James Molony, the largest landlord in Tulla, County Clare, and about his two surviving sons William Mills Molony and Marcus Molony. I am also actively involved in an annual local history publication in Tulla entitled ‘Reflections from Home and Abroad’ which shares local historical and genealogical articles about Tulla. I am presently the Chairperson of the Clare Roots Society in County Clare and I have given talks about Ellis Island Emigration and Genealogy Resources. I received an MA in Local History in University of Limerick in 2016.
