Hello, does anyone know of James Lee (my grandfather) who owned a farm in Clifden certainly through the 1880s-1920s? I know that Marconi stayed with my Lee relatives when he was there for the radio tower (early 1900s) and that the Bishop would stay with my family too. The home was turned into a resort by my cousin, Bernard Lee. My grandmother was Delia Lee born 29 Jun 1893.
