This Christmas memento is a card sent from the Mullanes in County Tipperary, Ireland to the Coyles in New York City, c. the mid 1930s. The card was signed by Aunt Ellen (Ellen Mullane, 1874 – 1952) and Uncle Dan (Daniel J. Mullane, Jr., 1882 – 1965). It was sent to the Coyle sisters, Marguerite (Coyle) Marshall, Lillian A. Coyle and Kathleen G. Coyle. They were all born in New York City, the daughters of Michael & Mary Josephine (Mullane) Coyle. Although their mother had left Ireland in 1885 she kept in touch with her family in Ireland and, after her death in 1927, her daughters continued to keep the connection alive. It must have been a special connection because the card was treasured and saved and is still in the family.
