Ed Rooney Posted August 7, 2021 Share Posted August 7, 2021 An odd thing having to do with photography, of course. But we won't insist on that. Yesterday, while on my way to the Post Office in Liverpool One, I passed a woman with a cute small red-haired girl of about two. I stopped and said hello and told the mother that my family name was Rooney, which is the Anglicised word for Ruanaidh in Irish meaning red-haired. (Like the daughter.) "Really? I didn't know that," the woman said. And then she told me that her maiden name is Rooney. I was totally discombobulated. Edo, a non red-haired Rooney. There were no redheads in my Sligo family . . . but my stepson is a redhead. 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
