Gallaghers have long had connections with Canada. One of the first pieces of information we received (via May McClintock, Letterkenny) related to a Gallagher from Letterkenny setting up in business in St. John's, New Foundland in the early 1800s. A leading historian of the immigration into Canada is herself a Gallagher - Marianna O'Gallagher.
If you are one of tthe many people with Gallagher connections we want to hear from you about you and your and your family's story. Later we intend to add a sample of these to our site but only with the express permission of those who forward their stories.
