In April 2012 I recieved an email from Sean Moynagh. He had found my website and was pleased to find details of his grandparents. They were Charles Rooney & Sarah Cosgrove.

Sean sent me this great photo and said the following.

" Attached is a photograph of some of the family. From left to right is Annie, Charlie, Dan, Granny, Theresa, Peter and Sarah (my mum). Missing from this photo is Edward who immigrated to Boston in 1930 and Lizzie who immigrated to New Zealand"

Because the Cooper Rooney tree and all its descendants run into many different Rooney families in Roslea, I have put the tree on a separate page because it is so large.
