SHEILA DEASY, KNOCKNAFAIRE, TERRYGLASS (Part 2)

Description

On a return visit to the Deasy home, Sheila Deasy first spoke about Gortrea, in Galway, and her happy days growing up there. The fact that her grandparents lived in the house gave her an opportunity to learn about the previous generation. She explained how her father was a seventh son of a seventh son, and she herself felt that she had the gift of the sixth sense, and spoke about the experience of seeing a ghost on one occasion. The interview continued with a discussion of her son’s narrow escape from death while participating in a yacht race across the Atlantic. She spoke about how privileged the Deasy family had always been, and how dedicated her husband Rickard had been to his position in the farming organisation. Finally, she made the connection with her mother-in-law, who was Dolores Hickie who married Peter Hugh Deasy. This was most interesting, as I have also recorded the history of the Hickies, thus I have traced the family history on both sides.
