  1. My fathers family (Connolly’s)were long time residents of Bagenalstown. My great grandfather is Peter Connolly and great grandmother Julia (McDonnell) Connolly. I would very much like to obtain a copy of this book as I continue to research my father’s family history. Any thought’s on how I might obtain a copy? Thank you for your efforts!
