Me!

Hello, my name is Clare Horgan and was born and raised in Claregalway, Co. Galway, Ireland. My father Joe was born in Knockavilla, Cashel, Co. Tipperary and my mother Mary Greene was born in Woodford, Co. Galway.  I have two younger siblings, my sister Anita and my brother John.  Even though my mother was born in Woodford she grew up in Loughrea, Co. Galway.

My interests are all things Irish. From the Irish language to the heritage and from the culture to the genealogy.  I am back living in Claregalway, after been in Washington, DC USA for 11 years and two years in Belgium before that. Sometimes I feel that been abroad and coming back that I am one of those Irish than the Irish. 

Tracing your own tale!

Muintir Genealogy is tracing my own tale, It is a name I gave myself when doing genealogy. I was going to start a business under that name but decided that running my own business was not for me. I enjoy research family trees, not only my own but for others. I do if for pleasure and like to help people, with the knowledge I have gained doing my own and from doing a Certificate Class in Family History/Genealogy in University College Dublin (UCD).
