Re: McMahon house & castle in Moyarta parish

I was reminded of this thread by a post at https://www.facebook.com/groups/countyclare/permalink/3539216449482787/ by an American claiming "McMahan [sic] ancestry" whose "ancestors built Carrigaholt Castle in County Clare". This got me looking for a published pedigree of the MacMahons of Carrigaholt...

Re: J. W. Johnston, Kilkee-born actor

Great finds, Linda. Have you also been updating the Wikipedia page at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._W._Johnston ? The register of baptisms in Kilkee parish, like most baptismal registers, does not indicate in which of the churches in the parish the baptism took place; John Johnston was more likel...

Re: McMahon house & castle in Moyarta parish

I don't think that Breen & UaCroinín have gotten around to publishing on Carrigaholt Castle in the Other Clare yet - there is nothing to indicate that they have done so in the table of contents at https://tbreen.home.xs4all.nl/Journals/Clare.html Hugh Weir does cover Carrigaholt Castle and Cottage o...

James Crowe was a widower when he died in 1889, so his second wife must be the only Ann* Crowe whose death was registered in Kilrush between their marriage and his death. !DEATH: Ireland, Civil Registration Deaths Index, 1864-1958 Name: Anne Crowe Estimated birth year: abt 1807 Date of Registration:...
