Until recently, they were held at St. Columba's Church in Ennis, but they may now have gone to the Represe...

I learned this evening from a man who was raised by his mother's first cousin and her husband Denis Quinlan (1904-1973) that Denis's aunt Johanna Quinlan married James McCarthy. James and Johanna were both teachers and taught in Kilronan on Inis Mór in the Aran Islands. I have not yet found them in ...

The use of niece/nephew in place of granddaughter/grandson is so common in the census returns that I have long since given up recording new examples.

Not only is Annagh an unofficial place name for the area around Cascade Lodge in Lissyneillan and an official townland name for a townland in Kilmurry DED in Cragaknock dispensary district, but there is also an Annagh DED in Milltown Malbay dispensary district, adjoining Kilmurry DED. See this map.
