Opera set in Clare "Hearts of Erin"

Back in the pre-1920 days of profusely sentimental songs about the old country, a Dublin-born composer Victor Herbert (see biography, including a photo of him socializing with John Philip Sousa), chose County Clare as the setting for his opera "Hearts of Erin" and then presented it in a well-known N...

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

Not sure what happened to steward Michael Halloran of Affock Lodge after the 1881 shooting. He and his wife Margaret Hogan, married in 1875, had no children recorded in the Tulla baptism records. Nor could I find them in the 1901 Irish census. Perhaps they immigrated to America or Australia? I have...

Re: Considine, Kilmorane, Killone: date of death needed

Sheila, I have two remarks to make at this point: 1. The quickest way to pin down the date of the newspaper page in question is to call the Limerick Archives and ask their online collections specialist to confirm that the date is indeed 31 Dec 1836 as indicated in the page's online pathway header. I...

Re: Clare men in the U.S. Civil War, additions to online database

Susan, It's totally your choice. If you post it here, then it will have the benefit and impact of any other posting to this forum. I can then include selected details for inclusion in the permanent soldier database on the Library website. To otherwise provide me with information, you can use this fo...

Re: Clare tenants emigrating assisted, 1839, '40, '83

New material found at last. Two items that should be fairly accessible: 1. A communication from the Kilrush Board of Guardian in 1846 to a government official, in which the Guardians urged clearing out the workhouse by emigration, meaning ship passage paid: page one, Clare Journal 26 Nov 1846 and 2....

Betham's Will Abstracts, a report from attempted use

This is not a resource for my own genealogy, as my main family line of Donnellan has its own pedigree compiled before 1922 by the Office of Chief Herald. However, there are two entries in Betham's Will Abstracts for another Clare family, whose descendant I am assisting. I have kept this resource on ...

Re: Clare men in the U.S. Civil War, additions to online database

Susan, There will be updating of the database as long as the Library permits it, and I will happily include your O'Brien ancestor. At this point I just need a link or reference to get to wherever you found the details you posted about him. Format for the entries is being kept as uniform as possible....

Re: Meaning of "Lodged Information" Petty Sessions Offence

Good clear response by Jimbo, that I will confirm from my years working in the criminal justice system in the U.S. "Lodge" means to put on file in the sense of "to register." "Information" in the criminal system refers to a formal action equivalent to a "complaint" in the civil suits. The next step ...

Re: Kilmaley Baptisms 1828-1882

Spoken like the real-deal master transcriber that you are, Sheila. So candid and helpful. You need not tackle such nearly-inscrutable pages and yet you wade in and do your best. Fantastic.

This was likely in the Ennis newspaper but for the sake of those in the broader world, I am repeating verbatim Claire Santry's report of papers found in an attic storage spot, online with an additional t.v. video at https://www.irishgenealogynews.com/ "A 100-year-old archive of IRA material, includi...

Re: Agricultural Labourers in Clare in the 19th Century

Good topic, Sheila, and nice to see established facts being used as a jumping off point for interpretation. I have some thoughts on why, if it had been indeed the case, that family relocations were not so evident during the second half of the 19th century: a. The young people who were emigrating wer...

Re: Cahiranouga - help locating needed please

A combination of Sheila Duddy's church transcription plus the Library's Tithe Applotment townland list (of the 1820s, containing many obsolete placenames) indicates that the townland is Cahirawaraga, which must be near Lisaroo where this family lived just prior to the 1860 baptism. The civil parish ...
