Hi Eileen
We have never met but are third cousins. I'm slowly doing my family tree - a massive task. Your mum was daughter of Ellen Gill. Ellen was daughter of Bridget Diamond. Bridget was sister of my great grandad Patrick H. Diamond from Moygownagh. Your cousin P.J. (in the homeplace) helped me with info on Ellen Gill's husband and children. I met up with him about 2 years ago when I was in Ireland. I still have much work to do on all my north Mayo bloodlines. Just wanted to say hello when I recognised your family names. Best wishes.
