During the season of NBC's Who Do You Think You Are?, I post a page about each week's episode on rootsweb. This coming week they are traveling to Ireland to find out more about the ancestry of Rosie O'Donnell's mother.

While working on this week's project, I discovered that Rosie's 3rd cousin is actress/model Bridget Moynahan currently starring on the CBS drama Blue Bloods.

In 2007, Bridget Moynahan had a son with NFL quarterback Tom Brady. Tom Brady also has an Irish lineage. His grandmother was Peggy (Buckley) Brady. Her grandparents came to Milwaukee from County Cork and County Clare, Ireland. Eleven children were born in Milwaukee, before they moved on to California.

Peggy Brady's father and grandfather:

Rosie O'Donnell's paternal grandparents and great-grandparents from County Tyrone:
