Will’s maternal grandmother, Brigid Deeley, was born in Loughrea, Co. Galway. She immigrated, with her brother, in 1911 at the age of 18, and worked as a domestic for a German family in Philadelphia, who required that she change her name from Brigid to Bertha to secure the position, evidence of the prejudice against Irish immigrants at the time. Will’s father’s family is from County Cork. ♦
