Boston Tracey family from Galway

I'm searching for a set of Tracey siblings who emigrated from Galway, Ireland to the Boston area in the early 1900s. Possible names are Daniel, Patrick, and John. They changed the spelling of their surname from Treacy to Tracey when they came to the US. I want to determine whether or not our James Tracey/Treacy is also a sibling of this family. Our James was a US marine (WW1 & WW2) who eventually settled in New Jersey, but talked of having siblings in Boston. Most likely, James is of the Treacy family from Cornamona, Galway listed in the 1901 Irish Census. Parents were Thomas Treacy and Katherine Butler. Siblings Patrick, Daniel, Mary, Bridget, and Elizabeth are all found to have emigrated to Boston, as well as James. In Boston, they spell their surname as Tracy or Tracey.

FOCUS ON FACES Orla Ni Threasaigh

Up to two weeks before she filled in her CAO form last year, primary teaching was the top choice for Orla Ni Threasaigh.

She had made her decision at the start of second-level and stuck with it, even though she admits to having "hated it" during a week's work experience in fourth year.

"I was still thinking that maybe it wouldn't be that bad and I would feel differently in a few years," says Orla, whose about-turn came after a visit to the school from a lecturer from NUI Galway's Irish-language BA in Chumarsaid (Communications).

The 17-year-old native Irish speaker from Spiddal was immediately hooked. "The fact that this course was more practical than learning from books, more hands-on," really appealed to Orla, who always loved acting.

The course covers journalism, working in radio and television, and law. According to Orla, "It is brilliant. At first I thought I would prefer the television side, but now I am really into radio."

The course, only in its second year, is taught at NUI Galway's centre in Carraroe, Co Galway, close to Orla's home and not really what she had in mind when considering her college options.

Her initial reaction to the course was "I'm not going back to Carraroe" but, while the visit from the NUI Galway lecturer swung her decision, Orla's teachers, career guidance counsellor and mother also played a role.

They sought to persuade her to pick a course closer to home, as she had only turned 17 shortly before her Leaving Certificate.

"They also knew I loved Irish and my career guidance teacher mentioned the course in Carraroe." Orla couldn't be happier about her future prospects. "A career in talking. Fantastic," she says.

One year on, her advice to those filling in the CAO form is to consider all options up to the end.
