|The purpose of this site is to promote my hometown of Edgeworthstown. I have been pleasantly surprised at the amount of interest it has generated and this has prompted me to keep it updated whenever I find something new that may be of interest. I am not personally related to the Edgeworths. I have enjoyed my contacts with those who are related. Thanks to all my visitors, to those who have emailed me, signed the guestbook or just looked and thanks to these people listed on this page who have contributed to the site.|
