Five generations of Offaly family spanning 97 years


Five generations of an Offaly family celebrate at Christmas

It’s not often that five generations of the one family are photographed together!

Baby Ted, aged three weeks, when the photograph was taken just before Christmas, being held by his dad Kieran Casey and watched over by his granny Fidelma O’Connor Casey, his great-granny Liz O’Connor, Kildangan and his great-great granny Julia Bergin, proprietor of the Leinster House Drapery, Abbeyleix.

From youngest to oldest, there’s 97 years of an age span – an incredible and historic photo to have. Congratulations to Kieran and mum, Sophie.
