The Brennan Blog tracing Brennan families worldwide starting with my Longford and Roscommon roots. I'm a Brennan with clear roots in Clawinch Island, Co. Longford (on the Shannon)Brennan Family Clawinch, Co. Longford and possibly in Kilteevan, Co. Roscommon.

This story has intrigued me all my life and of late I have begun to collect information about Brennans the world over. If you have Brennans in your family, you are cordially invited to join me and maybe we will get to the root of this family story, or maybe not...
