  • I am so happy to have found this interview! Mrs. Farragher is the widow of my grandmother’s nephew. My grandmother was Nora Farragher, who emigrated to California over 100 years ago. I had the pleasure of sitting with Attracta in her cozy kitchen in 1987, sipping her delicious tea and eating her wonderful soda bread as we talked about my relation “back home.” I’m hoping to be able to find a birth certificate for my grandmother, but I cannot find anything for though I know her birth date. I’m happy to have found the Milltown Heritage website and will try to rediscover my roots.
