My wife and I really enjoyed our stay @ Cloncarlin House. Marie just went overboard to assure our stay was positive, and she succeeded. Our stay was even more enjoyable for me because my family roots are in County Kildare and in Monasterevin. Michael Kelly Lawler was born 11.16.1814 in Monasterevin and left for America at the age of 2 from the port in Cobh, Ireland in March 1816. Served with other Irishmen in our Civil War 1861-1865 as a Brig. General and a hero at the Battle of Vicksburg, and raised horses just as he probably would have done in Co. Kildare @ Cloncarlin.
