  • Well done, Milltown Heritage Group. How gratifying to get this cross-generation feedback !

  • To Julie Kendrick-Finn. I read your recent comment with great interest. I supplied the photo with Bill McGrath in it, to this heritage website. His brother, Raymond, who is also in the photo, was my grandfather. Please reply to my email address, for further discussion/information. Thanks, Ray McGrath, Milltown.

  • Amazing to see William (Bill) McGrath with his very distinct window peak hair line in the picture in this article. I have never seen such a young photo of my Grandfather before. What a wonderful surprise. I know very little about his background, he never really spoke about where he came from but he did fill my head with stories of leprechaun’s and banshee’s though. Unfortunately he died over 25 years ago and is still missed dearly. So thank you so much for this picture. It really is a treasure
