Re: fish in the Meelick river

You are welcome, Matthew.
I see now that the French know all about Croneens: https://pecheenirlande.info/la-peche-de ... n-shannon/.

Re: fish in the Meelick river

Hi Matthew I looked in Dineen too, but, as you say, "Cróininí" is not there. But I did find a reference to Croneens in this piece by by Paul Molloy: https://fishinginireland.info/2018/trout-reports/brosna-and-camocor-getting-some-croneen-fishing/. It doesn't tell us what kind of fish Croneens were, ...

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

Hi Jimbo, Quick note re Patrick Kavanagh: Yes, Yeats would be considered by far the more important poet, but Kavanagh is held in very high regard here, and his poem/song, "On Raglan Road", is much loved. But I want to reply to the main part of your post and am leaving more on that poem to a footnote...

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

The History of New Quay in 12 Tales , by Kathleen Fawle, was published last year (2023), but I did not know of it until I read a recent review in The Irish Times . The word “tales” in the title has a folksy sound and is a bit misleading, I think: the book is a regular, well researched history of th...

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

Hi Jimbo, The word "clitter" was also used in Co Clare. Back in the fifties, if you gave cheek, you might get a clitter. I enjoyed reading that next installment of Michael A MacNamara and The Field. Every parish probably has just such a field - representing a principle, or a matter of honour, or an ...

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

Hi Jimbo, I enjoyed reading about Michael Augustus MacNamara, who was unusual in those times in having attended university. He comes across as a bit pompous; his poetry was certainly very pompous. His mother was Anne (Nancy) O'Dea, but she's Mary on the headstone. Could Michael Augustus have made a ...

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

Hi Jimbo, Great work on the Leamnalehy McNamaras. In my experience two graves adjacent to each other, with same surname on the headstones, is enough to show that the two families were closely related. And I do not doubt that Martin was indeed a cousin of James, who was living in Waltham, MA. Great r...

Hi Jimbo

Thank you for that history - all new to me. I'm not able to make contributions for a while, but still very interested of course.

Hi Sharon, thank you for that help. Since I wrote I've become preoccupied by a health matter (not me) and won't be able to contribute for a while. But still interested of course.

Re: Inchicronan Tithes - help needed with one word

Hi Sharon, again I think I will abandon my hope of understanding why two thirds of Kiltoola tithes were due to the prebendary of Tomgraney. I’m beginning to see that I would first need some basic knowledge regarding prebendaries, unions, vicarages etc. Looking at Lewis’s Topographical Dictionary of ...

Re: Inchicronan Tithes - help needed with one word

Hi Sharon Yes, "thirds" is the word I could not make out. Thank you for that help. I thought that I would find some mention of Kiltoola in the Tithes for Tomgraney, but found none. One of the statements by the commissioners (Tomgraney) is difficult to read - maybe you can help me with it: http://tit...

Inchicronan Tithes - help needed with one word

The statements made by the Tithes Commissioners in each parish are very similar, but each one (that I’ve read) has some facet, or detail peculiar to that parish. In the case of the parish of Inchicronan, it is the setting apart of the tithes for Kiltoola that is interesting. The Commissioners are Au...

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

Hi Jimbo Well my maths* are bad too, but it was my reading that failed me this time. In the newpaper report of the death of Fr. Edward McNamara, I read “eighty-ninth year” as “ninety-ninth year”. Sorry about that. Well done finding Andréas Seán Mac Conmara in the 1911 census. When I first saw it, I ...
