Double Cousins

My sister and I were "talking" the other day about cousins on my father's Irish side of the family.  In digging further we discovered that they are also cousins on our French-Canadian side, both French-Canadian sides, my Great Grandparents.  While being related on both sides of the French-Canadian tree is not unusual, it is unusual to be related at the same time on our Irish side.  On the Irish side they are 1st cousins 1x removed and though it's hard to figure out the exact relationship on the French-Candian side it's much futher back as we share 7th Great Grandparents through our Great grandmother Delia and 8th Great Grandparents through our Great Grandfather Magloire.  The world is definitely small.
