Biographical History

The collection contains correspondence of three generations of the Greene family whose main residences throughout the period were Ballylarkin, Callan, County Kilkenny and ‘The Burgery’, Abbeyside, Dungarven, County Waterford. By 1895 the Ballylarkin property may have passed into other hands, possibly another branch of the family.
