FACEBOOK HELPS AUSSIE WITH BALLYBAY CONNECTIONS

The Ballybay and Its People facebook page has once again come to the aid of an individual seeking information about long lost relatives. Chris Nelson who has recently retired after 30 years serving as a Police Officer in the Queensland Police posted on the page seeking information about his great grandmother Ellen Daly who was born in 1837 in Drumskelt. Eagle eyed Peter Mc Aviney has been in touch with Chris and not only has he identified the house were Ellen was born he has also found some relatives. Chris and his wife Karen are planning to visit Ballybay in July 2017. It should be some holiday for the Australian.
