MIke Dwyer’s paternal grandfather, Johnny, left Eyeries on the Beara Penninsula to join his brothers and sisters in Butte Montana to work the copper mines. He left his own family on Beara, communicating with his son, (Mike’s father John) by letter. He came back to Ireland for a visit in 1915. He died in Phoenix Arizona in 1918.
