Anne is the (un)official historian of Clontarf, Minnesota and the senior correspondent for the Clontarf History Blog. She is the ultimate source for information on the families who once lived (and still live) in the town and surrounding area. Always eager to learn something new about the people and history of Clontarf, Anne adds the information to her already vast knowledge and comes up with connections that help paint a picture of life in Clontarf over the past 135 years. Anne is a native of Tara Township (just west of Clontarf) and currently resides in Clontarf Township.
Aine researches the history of the pioneer Irish settlers in Tara Township and Clontarf itself. Most of the posts come from the research she and her mother have conducted over the past six years. Her maternal grandparents were born in Tara Township in 1913 and lived in Clontarf before moving to Minneapolis, and Aine spent over thirty years listening to her grandmother’s memories of the place she left as a very small child. She loves it when people comment on her blog posts. Aine currently resides in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
