Can you help?
- Can anyone supply further pictures of Ballyedmond (especially any interiors or views of the garden front) or of Lota Lodge before it became an hotel; or any views at all of Fota House before the Morrisons enlarged it or of the manor house at Hamerton?
- I should be most grateful if anyone can provide photographs or portraits of people whose names appear in bold above, and who are not already illustrated.
- Any additions or corrections to the account given above will be gratefully received and incorporated. I am always particularly pleased to hear from members of the family who can supply recent personal information for inclusion.
