More than 160 years ago the Sause Family left the Ballyduggan/ Poulacapple area of Mullinahone to go to the USA.
Five years ago Jim Sause returned to Mullinahone seeking his ancestors.
A gravestone was located in Kilamery with the name Sause on it. Jim Sause vowed that he would return to Mullinahone bringing more of his relatives.
Next week in the Year of the Gathering Jim Sause and his family return to Mullinahone. They will be joined at Crocanóir by other members of the Sause family, gathering there from all over the USA and meeting for the first time in the place of their ancestors.
Their only contact with each other up to now has been on the internet so meeting in the flesh will be a special event for the visitors. We wish them welcome and hope that they will be around to enjoy the folk concert in Crocanóir on this Friday night.
