Re: McInerney 1898 postcard from Killawinna to Belgium

During the first week of March, I attended the funeral of a first cousin. At the reception afterwards I spoke to the priest who officiated at the Funeral Mass, he was a long time friend of their family, having attended high school seminary with another cousin. When he brought up studying in Belgium ...

Re: Information is wanted of Thomas McNamara, of Glandree,

Hi Sheila, Thank you for the further explanation on parish registers. Michael McNamara of Maherabaun townland was in Plot 16, and not Plot 49. The fact that James McNamara (Plot 15) and Michael McNamara (Plot 16) were in neighboring plots of an equal 49 acres was probable evidence that a father spli...

Re: Information is wanted of Thomas McNamara, of Glandree,

Hi Sheila, Thanks for your answering my question about the location of the baptism and marriage registers. I suppose the "Parish Priest" was responsible for maintaining the register for each parish, and thus Tulla Parish would have only one register despite having three churches in Tulla, Drumcharle...

Re: Information is wanted of Thomas McNamara, of Glandree,

Hi Sheila The fact that the McNamara's of Kilmore married their daughters to McNamara men from Magherabaun, doesn't exactly prove that all the McNamara families from Kilmore are closely related, but it does point in that direction. I would say that many people using the irelandgenealogy website for ...

Re: Information is wanted of Thomas McNamara, of Glandree,

Hi Sheila, Yes indeed, it will be difficult correcting all the times that Andrew Sheedy McNamara has been mentioned along with "killed by his own horse" during the search for the missing Thomas McNamara of Glandree. With additional marriage records now available, as well as new research, I am going ...

Re: Information is wanted of Thomas McNamara, of Glandree,

Hi Sheila, Thank you very much for the civil death record for John O'Halloran from 1893. The deceased butcher is definitely the son of Michael Halloran and Anne Cusack, although his age is off by 4 years. John O'Halloran would have been 32 years old (born in 1861) and not 36 years old as reported on...

Re: Wearing the green preceded by sending the green ?

With regards to sending shamrocks to friends and relatives overseas, I suspect most Irish simply pulled a few shamrocks from their back garden and stuffed them into a personal letter or card and sent them on their way. However, a new addition to my stamp collection might suggest that things weren't ...

Re: Information is wanted of Thomas McNamara, of Glandree,

Hi Sharon, Thank you very much, especially for providing the information in such a clear format. Upon a second reading, I realized that Thomas Donlon was from Amenia, Dutchess County. The same location as Thomas Mack and the McEnroe family from County Meath that we discovered at the beginning of the...

Re: Information is wanted of Thomas McNamara, of Glandree,

On the 12th of July 1882, Michael Considine, the young victualler from Church street, would certainly need to show caution when traveling from Ennis to make a delivery at Cullane House. Only nine months prior, in October 1881, there was a further escalation of violence: Two daring outrages are repor...

Re: Michael G. Considine and Daniel O'Connell

Thanks Deirdre, especially for your contribution that a Michael Considine was listed as a grocer at Brewery Lane in the 1867 Henry and Coughlan's Directory. By the 1870 Slater's Directory for Ennis, Michael Considine was not reported. The 1867 Directory is simply a listing of names and professions. ...

Re: Michael G. Considine and Daniel O'Connell

Hi Sheila, I tried to follow your research using google maps. Brewery Lane and Bank Place in Ennis run parallel. And if you are facing Dan O'Connells' Bar on Abbey Street, to the left is Brewery Lane including a sign posted on the wall saying as such. Brewery Lane appears to be fairly short in today...

Re: Information is wanted of Thomas McNamara, of Glandree,

At the June 1881 Land League meeting at Cullane, the Reverend Michael Carey, curate of Quin, who spoke to the crowd was most likely ordained in Killaloe in December 1870: ORDINATION IN KILLALOE — On Sunday, 18th instant, at the pro-cathedral, Killaloe, his Lordship the Most Rev.

Re: Search Function is working again.

Dear Clare Admin, While the search function works again, there is still one slight issue. The search results never include any post that was written while the search function was broken. I believe this period is June 2019 through around 16 October 2019. As a test, let's say you wanted to search the ...
