My name is Maria Cecilia Lovisolo Farrell and I am an Ambassador for Buenos Aires, Argentina.

I was born in La Lucila, Buenos Aires, Argentina, at home 1 month before my expected delivery day, on Monday, 5th December 1960.

I studied at a primary bilingual school.  For Secondary school I went to the commercial school. I graduated as a Spiritual companion and in 2021 as a Ontology Coach.

I’m married to Ricardo. I have 2 sons, Alfredo and Benjamin. Benjamin is married to Merlina. I have 3 granddaughters, Antonia, (7 years) Alfonsina, (5 years) and Renata (1 and a half)  and 1 grandson Gaspar (4 months). Ricardo has 2 children Santiago and Agustina.

Our Farrell roots come for my great grandfather Bernard Farrell who left Carrickedmond with his two sisters to came to Argentina in 1867.

His sisters returned to Ireland and died in County Longford. Bernand got married to Margarita Farrell at Buenos Aires and had 5 children, Francisco (my grandparent) Bernardo, Catalina, Pedro and Marcelina.

My mother, Sheila Farrell Ryan, always told us about Ireland, its traditions, the history, all about our roots and that makes me feel very, very Irish.

During the 80’s ,  Kevin Farrell,  one of my mums cousins went to Longford to find our relatives.  He met Hugh Farrell and he brought him around South Longford were he found graves of his relatives and some living relatives.

After that my mom contacted the Irish Embassy in Buenos Aires and due to this a delegation from Argentina spoke with Robert Farrell from Longford and went to visit the county. This was the beginning of the relationship with Argentina and Longford.

Mom was able to experience Ireland as an adult. She went to Longford for the first rally of the clan in 1993, and after this first visit to Longford she told us (my brother, my sister and me) that she wanted to go and live there.

Mom was the first Argentinian to became a member of the Farrell Clan and she returned to Longford 3 more times to join again the Clan´s gatherings.

I didn’t understand her till 2016 when I was lucky to travel and experience Ireland. As soon as I set one foot in Longford I felt at home so I understood her feelings.

Then in July 2018 I was able to join the Silver Jubilee International Farrell Clan Rally with my sister Patricia and her family and become a member of the Farrell Clan too.

At that time I was interviewed by the local newspaper at Longford, I also joined the gathering with Ricardo on 2022 , and  hopefully we will join next one on July 2026.

My wish as an international ambassador for the clan is to transmit to the Farrell´s in my country the same thing that my mother transmitted to us and that they too feel their roots as I feel, and join the Clan as I did.
