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

Hi Jimbo Well, I did not expect that! There goes my hope that all lived happily ever after. So, Jimbo, I feel sure that you are right when you say that the baptism of James William Halpin (1861-1943) in Tulla indicates that his parents, James and Johanna, were living in that parish at the time of hi...

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

Hi Jimbo Thank you for reading the Will. I think it just shows how worried John Harrison was that the farm would pass to some other family. I think Johanna was probably still very young at the time and almost certain to get married again and this was preying on his mind. The Codicil shows how much h...

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

Well, Jimbo, I can't resist adding this: I found the death of John Harrison in the Calendar of Wills: “The Will with one Codicil in the County of Clare, Farmer, deceased who died 21 April 1858 at Curramurra aforesaid was proved at Limerick by the oath of the Reverend Patrick Quaide of Mountallen in ...

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

Hi Jimbo Thank you very much for taking all that trouble over my query and for the obituary – it tells us very little, but I am glad to have it – I wondered if James had any children by his first wife, Harriet, but it seems he had not, or none that survived him, at least. Thank you for all the recor...

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

Hi Jimbo, again I have found that there is one Halpin baptism in the Tulla baptisms that concerns the Quingarden Halpins, i.e. the baptism on 27 Dec 1861 of a James Halpin of James Halpin and Margaret Walsh; sponsors: Michael McNamara and Bridget Quin (see the very last page of the 1846-1862 registe...

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

Hi Jimbo Yes, I was careless when I described William Mills as the eldest son. In her article, Jane Halloran Ryan describes him as “the only child of James Molony and his first wife, Harriet Harding Molony, to reach adulthood.” James’s eldest son, James, and eldest daughter, Harriet, had died in chi...

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

Hi Jimbo Reading that posting, I was reminded of an interesting article, “William Mills and Marcus Molony, Sons of James Molony of Kiltannon”, by Jane Halloran Ryan, in last year’s issue of The Other Clare (Vol. 43, 2019). Jane Halloran Ryan explains that James Molony married twice and had 12 childr...

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

Hi Jimbo Thank you for confirming that the father of John Halpin in Quingardens was Patrick (Maybe I should have included in my outline that I think James, who went to South Africa, was the James Halpin who married Mary Ellen Curtin of Miltown Malbay in 1900. She died in childbirth and James is livi...

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

Hi Jimbo Well, it took me a while to solve that riddle, but finally I saw that Cath Halpin, Kiltannon, married James Fitzgerald on 19 Feb 1833 (Tulla marriages 1819-1846). The Quin-Clooney baptisms show that James and Catherine raised a family in Feaghmore, which is spelled Feymore in Tithes and was...

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

Hi Jimbo As we are on the subject of the Halpins in the townlands of Kilduff and Clonleary in Tulla parish, I am reminded of the work you did on the connection between the Meehans in Derryulk and the Halpins in Affick – there are two families of Halpins in Affick, both descended from the John Halpin...

Re: Festival of Lunasa

Hi Matthew Today is the 1st of August, or Lúnasa, and I suppose that is what prompted you to ask about the Festival of Lúnasa. But I’m not sure that there is any particular occasion during the month that we can trace back to “The Festival of Lunasa.” August was a time for gatherings of various sorts...

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

Hi Jimbo Thank you for another interesting posting. Yes, I think you are right when you say that Fr. James Halpin was not a brother of Margaret Halpin who married Michael McNamara (1853), nor a brother of Anne Halpin who married Mathew McNamara (1867). I see now that Fr. James Halpin was celebrant a...

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

Hi Jimbo I was looking at William Halpin in Kilduff Middle, aged 66 in 1901, and aged 77 in 1911, and saw that his son William, who was single in 1901, had married by 1911. He married Catherine Vaughan from Kilbane (Killokennedy parish) in 1908, and the record shows that the celebrant was James Halp...

Re: Patrick Bugler (1895-1964)

I just want to correct a small point I made in passing regarding a French order of nuns which some Clare women joined in the mid 20th century. I said it was in Bergerac, but I should have said it was in Perigueux (Couvent Sainte-Marthe de Périgueux). I realise now that Bergerac was just the airport ...
