Presenter:  Mary Kircher Roddy
Mary became interested in genealogy in 2000 in anticipation of a sabbatical in Ireland where her husband was a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Limerick.  She was sure she would complete all her Irish genealogy while her husband taught at UL  and her children attended Monaleen school.  Two decades later, the genealogy is still a work in progress.  But the trip to Ireland awakened something deep in her Celtic bloodlines, the Irish tradition of the Seanachi, the storytellers and historians of yore.
