My great-grandad and John McCormack's dad allegedly fell out when they were in competition for a factory foreman's job. His dad got the job, and I'm not sure what happened to our side, but we think he may have been sacked. It would have been in Athlone City in, perhaps, the 1880s or 1890s. That's what's been handed down! My grandma, his daughter, was born there in 1902, which entitles me to Irish citizenship, which I'm seriously considering.
