    Greetings from Perth Australia

    I'm Pauric, I have been living in Australia for the last 2 years and hail originally from Laghey in Donegal. So I've still got very very stong links to home Smile

    I have great pride in my parish and county and a few years ago I set up 2 websites for the 2 local villages
    - http://www.laghey.com
    - http://www.ballintra.com

    I set them up to give people who originate from Laghey/Ballintra as well as visitors some basic information about the area as there is not much publicised about them online and Donegal in general.

    I receive a few requests every month querying relatives and family names and help out as best I can (my young age seems to be the issue ... i cant trace family names back far enough).

    I hope that this site can grow to become a comprehensive source of information for families, friends, and areas wirhin Donegal and I hope to help as many of you out as possibe.

    Big kudos to Annie for settings this up. If I can be of any help ... just say!
