Re: emigration grief in Clare

Hi Matthew I'm afraid I have very little to contribute. When you mention building sites, Dialann Deoraí , by Dónall MacAmhlaigh, springs to mind straight away. That book left such an indelible impression that I think we forget that many thousands of Irish workers settled into ordinary, comfortable l...

Re: McInerney 1898 postcard from Killawinna to Belgium

Hi Jimbo Thanks for that interesting posting. I hadn’t known about the American College in Louvain. Just a small point on the first William Maly, b. 16.05.1828, son of Pat Maly: his mother is Mary Halloran, not Anne. William's siblings are Mary b. 06.04.1826; Michael b. 19.07.1830; Bridget b. 01.03....

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

Hi Jim

Good work. It shows how very helpful the U.S. records are. And shows that second cousins were all part of the family. They were invited to weddings and, as we know, “going to a wedding is the making of another.”

Re: Info wanted for: Knoc(k)agarrane, Rooskamore, Ballyinchinmore

Hi Murf Yes, it’s very possible that Reidy is a transcription error in that 1858 marriage record and that it should be Murrihy. As you say, the birth of Kate in 1860 ties in with an 1858 marriage. You confirm that Patrick in the 1901 census is the son of Charles Callinan and Kate Murrihy. Is he the ...

Re: Info wanted for: Knoc(k)agarrane, Rooskamore, Ballyinchinmore

Hi Murf I looked at Drumellihy Cunningham in Kilmacduane, but haven’t found the Callinan-Campbell connection you are looking for, I’m sorry to say. I looked at the Patrick Callinan, who is living in Drumellihy Cunningham in 1901, aged 35. I think he is probably a descendant of the Edmond Callanan, m...

Re: Info wanted for: Knoc(k)agarrane, Rooskamore, Ballyinchinmore

Hi Murf I looked at Campbell on the Genmap and notice that there are Campbells in quite a few places. I think the Campbells in Kilmacduane are not the same Campbells who are in the 1821 list and 1829 list that you provide links for. I notice that the 1821 List of Freeholders puts Knocagarrane in the...

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

Hi Jimbo A lot more work done by you there. Yes, it does seem likely that James McNamara in Plot 15 and Michael McNamara in Plot 49 (in Griffith’s Valuation of Maherabaun) were brothers, but it is only a likelihood. I really don’t think you should move on to saying, “The movements of her [Anne McNam...

Re: A link between Cahermacrea, Ruan, and the Titanic

Well, I was wrong when I said that the statue of Michael O’Loghlen was installed in the Courthouse in Ennis in 1852. I see now, in this piece on some graves in Ruan old graveyard, that the statue was in the Four Courts in Dublin: “Until 1922 there was a statue of Sir Michael in the Four Courts in Du...

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

Hi Jimbo, I forgot to answer your question about where the parish registers were kept. I think they were kept in the priest’s house (in Ireland we use the word “presbytery” for the priest’s house, but I think "presbytery" refers to elders of the church in other places). People searching for their ro...

A link between Cahermacrea, Ruan, and the Titanic

Arthur Jackson Brew was among those who drowned when the Titanic sank in April 1912. This article gives some information on him: https://www.encyclopedia-titanica.org/titanic-victim/arthur-jackson-brewe.html As the article states, Arthur was the son of Henry Joseph Brew. Henry Joseph Brew (abt. 1840...

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

Hi Jim Thanks of the documentary on Percy French, which I enjoyed – even though Brendan O’Dowda omits The Darling Girl from Clare and Are You Right There Michael?. Brendan O’Dowda gives a fine rendition of The Mountains of Mourne, but I like Don McLean’s version too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=...

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

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everybody. Hi Jimbo, That’s good work. But first I must explain that I’ve deleted my references to Andrew McNamara as having died of a kick from a horse. I felt it must be very annoying for his descendants to find him described so wrongly. Plus he could just as easily have b...

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

The Newmarket-on-Fergus Catholic Parish register of marriages (1828 – 1865) shows the marriage of Heffernan Considine to Mary McMahon on the following day, 26 Nov 1845; witnesses: Denis and Miss(?) Canny (page 219): https://registers.nli.ie/registers/vtls000634764#page/219/mode/1up. Does this double...

I see now that Bartholomew Considine of Drumadrehid (adjacent to Kilmoraun) converted to Protestantism in 1755.

Re: Did the O’Gorman Mahon walk the Flaggy Shore?

Oysters called Red Bank Oysters came from near the Flaggy Shore, and are mentioned in James Joyce’s Ulysses . Here is some more on the oysters and the “Oyster Road”: In Parish of Kilkeedy , Frank Brew writes on the big houses of parish of Kilkeedy (Tubber), including Rockforest House in the townland...
