Customer Reviews

Informative and Entertaining

I found the first podcast of the Irish Family Cafe to be a wonderful introduction to the topic of tracing your Irish heritage. Not only is the information presented by Mr. O'Laughlin informative, but also inspiring. From the rousing music to the various tips provided by others who have managed to trace their own Irish roots, I found this to be an enticing catalyst to begin one's own journey.

Thanks from the Donahue clan !

Grreat first ever series of podcasts on Irish Families and Irish family history. I have several of your books from way back in the 1980's - so glad to see you are still here. Love the Missouri Irish podcast that you have just begun too. Both are now keeping me company on the way to work. You've been a one of a kind source for many years around here. Looking for more of my family names to be featured on this one. The Donahue coverage was great, from DNA to Ireland..... Thanks
