Re: DEENIHAN of Kilrush

Over nine years on, I stumbled across the marriages of Maurice Deenihan's parents, Thomas Denihan (son of another Maurice) and Bridget Shea, who were married first in the established church in Rathronan, County Limerick, on 28 Aug 1853 (see civil record ) and again in the Catholic church in Athea pa...

Re: niece/nephew = grandchild ?

Another variant on the same theme: John Griffin was enumerated with his maternal grandparents as "Niece" in 1901 but "Nephew" in 1911. http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Clare/Cahermurphy/Cahermurphy/1080464/ http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Clare/Cahermurphy/Cahermurph...

Re: Did John Clancy from Clare marry his brother's widow (1924)?

Almost 11 years on, Jim Herlihy has drawn my attention to this Clancy family again with a post in a Facebook group called "Royal Irish Constabulary1816-1922 -A forgotten Irish Police Force".

John Clancy's daughter-in-law has appeared in an online phone book since I last looked for her.

Re: John Egan (jun) of Kilrush m. 1862 Anne Kelly of Glascloon

When I started this thread almost nine years ago, I suspected that Anne Egan née Kelly was a half-sister of my GGgrandmother Mary Clancy née Galvin, whose widowed mother Mary Galvin née Conors or O'Connor married Thomas Kelly of Glascloon shortly after the death of her first husband in 1837. I subse...

Re: ANZAC soldiers from Clare in World War 1: NAA site

Nine years later, I've finally found some of Patrick Blake's descendants for whom I have put together more information on him on my Facebook profile.

Re: niece/nephew = grandchild ?

Another interesting example, where the child's "RELATION to Head of Family" is given as "Grand Daughter", while her "RANK, PROFESSION OR OCCUPATION" is given as "Neice"!

Re: Patrick Bugler (1895-1964)

The recent death notice of another Clare nun with a Bugler grandmother prompted me to start looking at Bugler connections: https://rip.ie/death-notice/sr.-carmel-patricia-scanlan-nenagh-tipperary/429344 http://www.clare.fm/obituaries/sr-carmel-patricia-scanlan-nenagh-formerly-killaloe/ Google quickl...

"First Cousin" = grandchild ?

This is the first time I have come across "First Cousin" on a census return apparently meaning "grandchild": Mary E Casey and Katie Casey were enumerated in 1901 in their grandfather's household in Lack East . They were also apparently double counted in their parents' household in Glenconaun More . ...

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...
