Our Roots, Families, past Generations etc...
Hi Debslaw I also knew your granddad Leo Leonard and my Dad knew him really well. He was a lovely man and knew more about the church in Gladthule than the priests. I also knew your uncle Johnny as he was a friend of my eldest brother when they were kids. Welcome.DebsLaw wrote:Hi Im new to the site and have just came across this post, Leo Leonard was my granddad, my mothers father, he was the clerk at the Church in Glasthule and was married to Bridget Dowling, they moved to O Donnell Gardens. He did have a brother called Dominic who became a monk in Mellifont Abbey and as mentioned they both played football.

There would be photos of both Dom and Leo Leonard on my http://www.soccerintheboro.com web site in the Edenville section and Blackrock Hospital section
Hi Harjoe I was looking at the photos on the soccer in the borough and didn't realise it was your site, well done. Brilliant photos over the years and I was delighted to see three photos of my brother, a couple of my uncle and another of a cousin of my Mother. Many names brought back memories too, Corrigan, Howard, Bell etc. Great photos that I had never seen before, many thanks.
