The Dillon-Harkin family find their roots in Ballygastell and Ballyteige, Lisdoonvarna, County Clare

"In July 2014 my Dillon cousins and I visited the ruins of the ancestral Dillon-Harkin cottage on the townlands of Ballygastell and Ballyteige, Lisdoonvarna County Clare. We found a local man Paddy Fitzgerald who guided us through the overgrown entrance and old rose garden to find the old walls of Lizzie Harkins cottage. We later visited Cliffs of Moher then finished off at McGanns Pub that night. Next day Paddy showed us through another house in Ballygastell once occupied by Dillons and later Kennys."
