    Is feidir linn bheit an-broduil as an website seo. Is cuimhin liom maraon leis na ceidte eile a caith treimhse i Loc Con Aoirthe ag foghlaim Gaeilge. Bhios ann i dtosach na seascadai nuair a raibh ceantair beo ann le scoil agus shopa (Mac Ui Cadhain) Ann. Bhi am alainn again. Is cuimhin liom go raibh Pat Mor Mac Donnacha in a Ard mhaistir sa scoil - d'imir se le Gallaimh uair amhain ceapaim. Ce go raibh music triobloideach o am go ham cuir daoine na haite, go mor mna na tithe, suas linn. Chuamar suas ar Cnoc Mordain la fluich baistuil gan fadhbh, rud nach feidir le paisti a deanamh aniois in am health and safety! .

    Yours is a wonderful effort and one that others could well learn from. Best wishes from a family who left Ireland long ago.

    . . . All is that it is, and should remain.
    I passed that way once
    In the footsteps of others,
    And such it has remained
    Through time and now, and on, and on.

    I left Loughconneera 35 years ago and love very much seeing my neighbors come together to create this incredible informative website. I can now refer to this website when asked questions about the name of the village. Thank you so very much!!!!. Excellent Job - I feel like I am at home when viewing the photos and reading about Loch-Con-Aortha.
