I'll be in Dublin for a few days later in the month and plan to do some family research. I have lots of brick walls and would love to break through even one! Right now I'm planning to visit the National Library of Ireland and General Records Office. Any other suggestions of places that might help provide information the break through those brick walls would be much appreciated.

Yes I have. I feel like I've used about as many online resources as are available to me, but the last information I can find on most of them dates forward from the time the came to the USA. I have found records on my mothers side from County Leitrim, but my fathers side eludes me. I have the surnames Holahan (possibly Holland at one time), Howard, and Ennis in my family tree on my father's side. My 2 grandmother, Ellen Howard, was born in Clonaslee, Queens County (Laois) according to her obituary. I have not found a birth/baptism record to corroborate. Family lore says my 2 ggrandfather, James Holahan, was from County Cork. I have found a few Holland's from County Cork the show up in DNA matches, but nothing else. I'm hoping that maybe I'll speak with someone at one of the local resources who might help me get some answers.
