Re: Prison Records?

Re: Thomas Shannon of Kilrush

The name Donlan was probably modern day spelling Donellan if that is of any help. There were Caseys who were a landowning family around Quilty Kilmurry Ibricken and also in Kilfarboy. You will find them in Burkes peerage. If they were the same family it couls be why robert called himself gent. If yo...

Re: Calendar of Wills Search Help, Please

What I mean is the family honoured the will by paying the bequests but the will was never proved and would never have ended up in the calendar of wills

Re: Obituary Help:Patrick Edward & Henry Patrick Reilly

If you have a Reilly vault you know other members of the family went into they are most likely buried there. Not everyones names always got added to a gravestone. This is not always about money its about someone organising the inscription. I know my gt gt uncle is buried in the Kenny vault in Kilmur...

Re: Calendar of Wills Search Help, Please

I dont know Sinead but I have also seen a copy of a will that was never actually proved and so would not be in the calendar. It was honoured.

That is what I was talking about

Re: Calendar of Wills Search Help, Please

For one family I am researching a distant cousin collected copies of wills in early 1900s. For some well off relatives they made wills, the wills were honoured but never proved. Also in many cases people gave their children and grandchildren their inheritances while they were still alive. You dont a...

Re: hospital in or near ennis?

Someone just got in touch with me who is related to the Reidys who Father Tom came from. He is Brown. Two Powell sisters married Moloney and Reidy. Their father was Patrick Powell married to he thinks Margaret Kelly Kenny. That is obviously untrue. She was either Margaret Kenny or Margaret Kelly. Th...

Re: hospital in or near ennis?

Saturday August 27 1932 a Father Reidy OMI officiated at the funeral of his cousin Michael Gallery who died young. I think though he is Thomas http://www.oblates.ie/assets/components ... gy07dd.pdf

Re: hospital in or near ennis?

That is highly likely to be the Reidys I am related to . Martin Taafe was married to Mary Moloney. He was from Ruan (Erinagh and Drumcavin). Mary Moloney was very likely from Dysart and I know they were related to Reidys but not which one. My gt grandmother was Mary Taaffe (Minnie) married to David ...

Re: hospital in or near ennis?

I am trying to track down Reidys who were related to the Taaffes or Erinagh (my gt grandmother was a Taaffe) an Oblate Father officiated at her son Michael Gallerys funeral in 1932 he was Father Reidy and was named as a cousin. He must have descended from one of the Taaffe sisters as there were no G...

Re: Kierce/Kerse/Kierse families near Corrofin

You are not going to find Catholic church records prior to 1819 - there were not any churches then. I dont know about Protestant records, but if there were any they mostly dont exist any more. land records are your most likely source. Most people cant go back that far.
