When my parents visited Ireland in 1988 they went to Thurles. My father souvenired this page from the phonebook probably meaning to contact some Fannings and see if they were connected.
He didn’t get around to phoning but brought the page back with him. Perhaps they ran out of time being on a tour group. All he knew was that his ancestors came from Thurles. He had made a list of some of the Fannings from around Thurles from this page and it is a pity he didn’t call them as they were related!
